Simple and Elegant Budgie

Recently, I noticed that Budgie DE is ranked as one of the amazing DEs available to Linux users.

Budgie (https://solus-project.com/budgie/) is a desktop of Solus Linux, built from scratch.

I downloaded Manjaro Budgie torrent from https://sourceforge.net/projects/manjarotorrents/files/community/Budgie/ and installed on my Parallels desktop.

Just like its description, the DE is simple and elegant.

It looks like some familiar and light DE with good number of Applications and Accessories installed.

The original download was some 1.3 GB.

I like the fresh icon design and plank that appears from left side of screen similar Ubuntu.

Overall, it looks good but personally, I like the Elementary DS Pantheon DE compared to this one.
