Ubuntu Budgie ultra-minimal build

While open source platforms are renowned for their scalability and flexibility, Ubuntu is moving a step further and receiving an “ultra-minimal” build. This development will emerge as a new version of Ubuntu Budgie that recently became an official Ubuntu flavour.

The team behind Ubuntu Budgie has teased the arrival of its minimal version in a recent tweet. The new open source platform is claimed to be installed on a system that has 220MB or even lesser amount of RAM. This is lower than the minimum requirement of 512MB of RAM for the original Ubuntu desktop edition.

To enable a smooth experience despite the less memory requirement, the Ubuntu platform is appeared to have an absence of pre-installed apps.

In November, the Ubuntu Developer Membership Board passed the Budgie as the latest Ubuntu flavour. The first official Ubuntu Budgie build will be based on the 17.04 release.
