Budgie is a desktop environment that currently uses GNOME technologies such as GTK and is developed by contributors from numerous communities such as Solus, Arch Linux, Manjaro, openSUSE Tumbleweed and Ubuntu Budgie. Budgie's design emphasizes simplicity, minimalism, and elegance. The GTK library used for all releases up to Budgie 10 will be replaced with the Enlightenment Foundation Library (EFL) for the upcoming Budgie 11 release.
