    [all variants] Re: drivers: system76 vs. ZAreason

    System76 build machines with custom BIOS and they guarantee compatibility with Ubuntu. I don't think Zareazon does anything of the sort, they just sell the default BOIS.

    For System76 + Ubuntu you...

    [all variants] Re: drivers: system76 vs. ZAreason

    System76 supports Ubuntu and Ubuntu only. Other distros work simply because they are Linux.

    System76 does tweak the BIOS, I don't think ZaReazon does anything Linux special on their machines. In...

    [all variants] Re: drivers: system76 vs. ZAreason

    The System76 "driver" is somewhat mislabeled. The Linux kernel has all the needed modules, what the S76 driver provides is a bunch of automatic setup scripts to adjust power management and some other...

    Re: Blurry text in HDMI output

    In my experience blurry text is usually due to wrong resolution. Check your settings and make sure to use the monitor's native resolution. Do you know what resolution the monitor usually uses?

    I use Ubuntu on 15'' 1920x1080 as well as 27'' 2560x1440p, picture is perfect including the fonts. I don't expect issues with 14'' and 1920x1080, it is only marginally denser than 15'' on 1920x1080....

    Re: Question

    WOW, 25% VAT. I thought Bulgaria's 20% were crazy, with that kind of tax, I wouldn't be buying as many computers myself.
