    My impression of Ubuntu Budgie

    Hello,

    Coming from elementary OS to Ubuntu Budgie have been an easy transaction. Both Os's have many similarities on the outside. One big plus and that turned me to Ubuntu Budgie is that it's very flexible, where elementary are very strict. I had to hack the panel in elementary to bend it to my will. But with Ubuntu Budgie it takes no more but than a click or two. Though I do miss the elementary OS specific made apps in their apps center. There only been two minor downside with Ubuntu Budgie, 1) You can't change the menu to grid/row in category view, 2) The persistent use of snap when you want to download something from the app center, I had to install synaptic to get from the repositories. But again it's minor things.
    Ubuntu Budgie is snappy and fast and it do what you tell it to do, PLUS you can customize it big time.
    One happy customer from Denmark.


    regards

    I would agree, Ubuntu Budgie UB is a polished product. Personally, I have used a lot of Ubuntu distros over the years, the last being xubuntu. But UB is as perfect as I have found.

    "One big plus and that turned me to Ubuntu Budgie is that it's very flexible, where elementary are very strict." Agreed.
    Have you manage to move around your desktop digital clock? I wasn't even aware I could do that. Someone has issue, and voila I discovered the movement.

    Yep, but I had to google it on how to move the clock. You wouldn't expect it to be at the panel option.

    Though they need to clean up in the menu. Lot of system settings which are available in Gnome Settings. It makes the System Tool menu 10 foot long. I even did a minimal installation of UB. Other than that it's great, it's the same menu system in eOS.

    Installed dconf and enable one click in nemo. Old habits die hard.
