Reddit: Which Ubuntu Budgie? Current stable or community-remix?

6 hours 23 min ago

What are the benefits/weaknesses of the current stable vs. the community supported?

  • 17.10 is the current stable release and follows Ubuntu support cadence - Oct 2017 to Jul 2018.
  • 16.04.3 is community supported - it is supported until upstream ends support (no current plans) and thereafter, as long as budgie-remix users wish to maintain its support.

https://ubuntubudgie.org/downloads

Thanks.
