Some folks have asked me what it would take for Slack to be part of the solution here, above and beyond what we expect from Apple. Honestly, I don’t have much hope for Slack, as their product direction seems to be to get people to spend as much time inside Slack looking busy as opposed to outside Slack being productive.
I tried the latest Ubuntu not 3 months ago and it still couldn’t handle an external display out of the box or run with appropriate drivers for my notebook trackpad. It was a generally awful experience. Sorry!
