Our goal is very simple – to become an official Ubuntu community distro: Ubuntu Budgie

To do so we need to build a community – and that means you.

Longterm Goal:

LTS Status. From 18.04 Long-term-support is an option that Ubuntu Budgie would love to provide to all of its users.  To be able to-do this we need to commit to a financially sound 3 year model – that is – be able to commit to support for three years or more.  To meet this goal we need to wrap costs for 2018, 2019 and 2020 as part of this goal.

  • Expected costs for 2018 – fully funded
  • Expected costs for 2019 – fully funded
  • Expected costs for 2020 – currently not funded

We want to give back to the following developers:

  • Pinguy who made 16.04 budgie-remix possible – partially funded
  • Solus community – who made budgie-desktop – currently not funded
  • GNOME foundation- currently not funded
