/me thinking: Hm, Solus Budgie is really nice but somehow I’m not too fond of the Solus base. Well, Budgie is Solus’ own homemade Desktop Environment, it fits Solus like Ass fits Toilet Seat. But butbut, I like ArchLinux much besterer, and Linux is a sharing culture, so maybe there is some Arch distro with Budgie available somewhere …?
And … TaaDaa! Look no further than my own favourite Namib GNU/Linux. 🙂 Indeed did my friend frederic2ec made a Budgie desktop available for his own distro too. \o/ YAY! \o/
All my problems are solved! Or are they?
Okay, this is a hard decision. Let’s say, yes, if you’re a very patient user and don’t mind locating and starting your apps from the menu, and if you don’t care much about the style of your work enviroment, then yes, by all means you can use Namib Budgie. But I’ve gotta admit Solus Budgie is the better, more flexible choice. I would only use it on my netbook during travels anyhoo.
For home use and on well-specced laptops I can only recommend the usual Linux Mint. It’s superior in every aspect.
