News Release #3

In the past 2 weeks we’ve seen a lot of progress in the development of the distro, as well with the community development. Community driven support helps us realize the key points on where to go with the development, and what are the most important things for the users of our distro.


News Release #2

This is the second of our fortnightly roundup of budgie-remix news.
