Following on from my recent video on the Ubuntu 20.10 beta we now have my favourite flavour of them, Ubuntu Budgie! The Budgie desktop is a sleek and clutter-free desktop that gets out of your way when you need to focus on the task at hand. It’s also tightly integrated with the GNOME stack and in Ubuntu 20.10 it ships with GNOME version 3.38 and uses the new Linux kernel of 5.8. To read more about the new features of this version of Ubuntu Budgie click here to read the release announcement. The ISO for this beta was slightly smaller than the standard version of Ubuntu 20.10 weighing in at around about 2.4GB.
As you can see in the video above I’m very impressed with the out of the box experience you get with Ubuntu Budgie. It has a beautiful look and feel that can be further customised at the click of a button all from within the ‘Budgie Welcome Screen’. Another useful feature is the ability to expand the desktops functionality with the use of applets.
