Budgie is a desktop environment developed by the same people who are working on Solus, a relatively new Linux distribution. Just last week, the founder of Canonical, Mark Shuttleworth said that he would support a new Ubuntu flavor based on this new and very popular desktop.
The idea of having an Ubuntu OS with Budgie took hold in the community, and it only took a developer a few days to put an ISO together. The work is done by David Mohammed, but it’s just a preliminary iteration. It’s not stable and it will be likely modified in the coming months.
David didn’t name the new distro Ubuntu Budgie because he didn’t want to get into the whole Ubuntu trademark discussion. If the developer continues on this road, he could eventually turn the Budgie-Remix into a proper Ubuntu flavor.
