OPERATING SYSTEMS --
Budgie-Remix, the unofficial Ubuntu spin making use of the Budgie Desktop, has released its 16.10 Beta 2 milestone following this week's Yakkety Yak Beta 2 release.

Budgie-Remix is re-based to the latest Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety package changes. In addition, a number of the Budgie-0Remix packages have been working their way into Debian proper and thus are available to Ubuntu 16.10 users via the official channels. Now available this way is the budgie-desktop package, Moka icon theme, Faba icon theme, and the Arc theme. The Ubuntu repository has also pulled in the Budgie artwork and wallpaper packages too.

Developers hope to be able to integrate the rest of the Budgie-Remix packages into the Ubuntu repository in time for Ubuntu 17.04 while a PPA is available for current Ubuntu releases.

For those unfamiliar with Budgie, it's the desktop being engineered by the Solus Linux distribution. Budgie tightly integrates with GNOME components, including GTK.

More details on the Budgie-Remix 16.10 Beta 2 release via this blog post. If you are unfamiliar with the project, see Budgie-Remix.org. If you've never seen Budgie before, stop by the Solus project site.
