The Solus 1.0 release didn't happen on Christmas as originally planned, but nevertheless it's available this morning for its premiere release and formal introduction of its own desktop environment.

Solus 1.0's desktop is called Budgie and it's a simple, GTK-powered desktop environment that ships with a nifty applet/notification/customization center, and various other features of the new desktop.
