Joey wants to know if Linux has a built-in VPN. Leo says no. He will need a provider to handle VPNs, not just software. Leo recommends visiting the Wiki for ARCH, a version of Linux. There's a great list of clients, carriers and servers that will run on Linux. That's the best place to start. Where can he get apps to download for Linux? Leo says that PopOS has its own "store," called the PopShop, which is an app that will help to install software.
David has been using PopOS for Linux and he's having issues with Gmail because the Gnome browser is pretty heavy weight. Leo says that PopOS often has that problem and he recommends Ubuntu, or XFCE. You can also use a browser called Epiphany.
