History of System76:

Initially, in 2003, a domain was registered by Fetzer. This was registered to sell the computers that had the preinstalled Linux operating system. This was the initial step and like all the startups it was not pursued. 

The biggest challenge was to consider which Linux distribution is best to use? This was important to bring the computer in the mass market and it was possible by the best choice of Linux. Customers always pay attention to the best thing in the whole market. They continued to work and selected the options like Yoper, OpenSUSE, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. But, later these options were dismissed. They also rejected Ubuntu but later they give it a thorough evaluation. So, they made the right choice. 

They sold the first computers that were preinstalled with Ubuntu 5.10 Breezy Badger. Apart from this, Richell was fond of Canonicals’ business model that is free of cost. It was backed by commercial support as it was essential. After that time, they made different changes. In May 2017 system76 launched a new shell theme that is known as Pop. in June 2017, they announced that they are creating their own Linux distribution based on Ubuntu known as Pop-OS. 

Why the Company was named  System76?

The name system76 is totally different as compared to the other computer manufacturing companies in the market. The number 76 in system76b depicts the year 1976. In 1976 the American Revolution took place. They made it base and they are hoping to initiate an open-source revolution. This essential for the customers because they do not always love to rely on proprietary software.
