[…] The Ubuntu dark mode looks great, but there are some UI el­e­ments that don’t re­spect it, so you end up with white win­dows and pop­ups oc­ca­sion­ally. […] Ubuntu 20.04 oozes pol­ish every­where. The Yaru theme is gor­geous and was a des­per­ately needed up­date in my opin­ion. I will be keep­ing this in­stall on my lap­top – I’ve no rea­son to go back to Pop! OS at this point. […]

For as long as I have a lap­top with an Nvidia graphic card, I'm still go­ing to stick with Pop!_OS. The bat­tery life/​power man­age­ment is ex­cel­lent out of the box and switch­ing be­tween the dif­fer­ent graphic modes just works. As my pri­mary and only com­puter, I value both these as­pects. Pop!_OS has de­liv­ered in the past and I have no doubt it will con­tinue to do so.

I have also found it to be more pol­ished than Ubuntu. It in­cluded a well-tested dark theme (toggled through Tweaks) start­ing way back from 18.04. I hope Ubuntu will fix the UI dis­crepen­cies in their dark mode.

Looking for­ward to their up­grade to 20.04. It re­leases on April 30. 🙂
