Also surprising, coming from MacOS, how Gnome 3 is nice and responsive. Gnome Maps is the type of nice little applet that is definitely on a par with the same offering from Apple.
While I have not looked "under the hood", I suspect systemd is definitely at work and accelerates the boot time. Here is hoping it won't crash on me (but it probably will, because systemd).
Surprising to see my ('Bonjour'-enabled) printer appear first thing, meaning I don't really need Mac OS anymore!
@ParadeGrotesque Not sure about the Snap "universe", but usually Debian (and derivates) consider as "non-free" software those applications/libraries that depend on something non-free. And these applications can be found in the "contrib" branch of the repositories, that represents a mixture of free and non-free (then you have main which is 100% free software, and non-free).
Perhaps is this the case?
