Linux Format - - Perfect Your Desktop -

De­vel­oped and used by the So­lus dis­tro, Budgie is writ­ten from scratch us­ing com­po­nents from the Gnome stack. It uses a uni­fied no­ti­fi­ca­tion and cus­tomi­sa­tion cen­tre called Raven, which also gives you quick ac­cess to the cal­en­dar, me­dia player con­trols, sys­tem set­tings and power op­tions. The desktop is also easy to cus­tomise and ex­tend, and of­fers gran­u­lar con­trol over in­di­vid­ual ap­plet set­tings.

While it doesn’t of­fer as many wid­gets as you’d find on es­tab­lished desktops such as Gnome, the project is con­tin­u­ing to im­prove and the de­vel­op­ers pro­vide an in­tel­li­gent and fun ex­pe­ri­ence, with a lot of fo­cus on im­prov­ing Raven. There are Ubuntu and Man­jaro spins based on Budgie, and Fedora users can fetch it from COPR.
