    Compatibility

    Hi,
    My system specs are:
    Pentium dual core @3 ghz
    4gb ram
    250 gb hdd
    Can I install and run Ubuntu Budgie smoothly?
    I previously installed ubuntu but it was laggy on my system, so wanted to change the os. So any suggestions?

    Welcome.

    Yes and no. Your 32-bit CPU is nowadays a major roadblock. The 32-bit architecture is supported (with standard Ubuntu 18.04) until 2023 or only 2021 if using flavors/derivatives like Ubuntu-Budgie 18.04.

    In a nutshell, nothing in the Ubuntu "family" has currently good support for 32-bit. Use Debian instead or many other distros, just not Ubuntu or Ubuntu-based.

    Dual core should be 64 bit? Budgie just run fine if machine is 64 bit.

    Before I built my most recent system, my main system failed (mobo or CPU) and I had to resort to an Athlon X2 5050e with 2GB RAM. It ran surprisingly well with a light xfce desktop. Web browsing with multiple tabs or leaving tabs with heavy CPU usage open was the main problem.

    4 GB should be okay for Ubuntu Budgie itself (it's their minimum requirement), but you may have to pay attention to ublock origin and such to get a good web browsing experience.
    It would me more useful to tell us the model number of your computer/CPU/GPU/motherboard to give us a better idea.
