Ubuntu Budgie Minimal Edition Coming Soon for Those Who Live Customizing the OS

The first development snapshot of Ubuntu Budgie 17.04 might land later this month, on December 29, when some of the opt-in flavors will participate in the Alpha 1 release. Until then, it looks like the team just released an ultra minimal version of Ubuntu Budgie, for those who love customizing their installations. The good news is that the Ubuntu Budgie Minimal ISO image will use no less than 220MB of RAM, which means that it’s perfect for deployments of the Ubuntu-based operating system on computers from 10 years ago, especially considering the fact that the Budgie desktop environment is also very low on resources.
