Ubuntu Budgie is an official community flavor of Ubuntu. It combines the Ubuntu-based system with the independently developed Budgie desktop environment.

History

Ubuntu Budgie started out as an unofficial community flavor in parallel with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, referred to as "budgie-remix". budgie-remix 16.10 was later released by strictly following the time frame issued for Ubuntu 16.10.

It was eventually recognized as an official community flavor of Ubuntu, and was rebranded as Ubuntu Budgie.

In November 2017, Vincenzo Bovino was hired as the new brand and PR Manager.

Ubuntu Budgie 17.04 was released in April 2017, and was updated to version 17.10 in October 2017.

32-bit support was deprecated from Ubuntu Budgie and Ubuntu MATE with the 18.10 release.
