Budgie Remix is a New Flavor of Ubuntu Featuring Solus Budgie DE

A new and upcoming GNU/Linux based Operating system called Budgie Remix is vying to become an Ubuntu flavor. The operating system which according to its creators is “designed with the modern user in mind, it focuses on simplicity and elegance. A huge advantage for the Budgie desktop is that it is not a fork of another project, but rather one written from scratch with integration in mind” is said to be on the receiving end of some wonderful improvements and even aim the praise of Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth who promised full backing if the developers can put together enough community members around the software packaging and make available a second Beta build based off the upcoming Ubuntu 16.04 released from his company.

Budgie Remix software creator David Muhammed was able to reach out to Ubuntu Mate project coordinator who later advised him to target the Ubuntu version 16.10 to raise the curtains on his soon be Ubuntu flavor which is based off the incredible Budgie desktop environment.


In an exclusive statement, Mr. Muhammed said “We’ve hit Beta 2 this week with lots of goodies and also we have the support of Martin Wimpress (Ubuntu MATE project leader),He has urged us to target 16.10 for official status – that is certainly a major challenge – and we need the community to help out/join us to make this happen!”

With Canonical putting in the final touches to their first full LTS release of this year — Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus —  which could also give early birds the chance not only to test the Beta version of the Budgie-Remix 16.04  but also help in the developmental process.

After the said release slated for April 21, Canonical engineers will shift their attention to the second and last release of the year which is dubbed 16.10 and it could also be the curtain raiser for the Ubuntu Budgie 16.10.
