Ubuntu Budgie Minimal, a new version within the official Ubuntu Budgie flavor

Ubuntu Budgie Minimal

A few days ago we received the news about the new official flavor of Ubuntu, Ubuntu Budgie and it seems that it will not be the only installation or version image that we receive with the Budgie desktop.

From the leader of the Ubuntu Budgie project, a version or subversion has been released that will accompany each version of Ubuntu Budgie, this will be called Ubuntu Budgie Minimal. This version will be oriented to teams with few resources but above all to users who want maximum customization with the Budgie desktop.

Ubuntu Budgie Minimal will be a version that can run with only 220 MB of ram. This version will come with Ubuntu and Budgie Desktop, both in their minimal versions and nothing else. The new version is aimed at those who want to customize their distribution and install the packages or programs that they want or want.

This version will be uploaded to the official Ubuntu Budgie website. However, this first version will not be released with the first official version of Ubuntu Budgie but will come out earlier, possibly before the end of the year, when Let's meet the first Alpha version of Ubuntu Budgie 17.04.

This version does not differ from many other official flavors that also have their Alternate version, However, it is true that it is the first version to receive the nickname "Minimal", something that will surely confuse many since it is only a light version of applications or programs, not requirements, requirements that will follow in the wake of Ubuntu 17.04 or at least that is expected.

Personally I find this version interesting, a version that should have more official flavors and give users the option to install their list of programs or simply choose another list of programs found in the Ubuntu repositories. What do you think?

    If you only need 220 mb of ram output, if that is lightened the requirements, right?
