I use 17.10
I've been looking for a normal Linux distribution for more than five years. Also has found. This is Ubuntu Budgie.
My Radeon 7790 video card works great. Significantly better than on ubuntu 16.04.

I use beta 17.10.
The elegance of the Budgie and the popularity of Ubuntu are packed in it. With the best results.

Excellent implementation of the Budgie Desktop based on the great stability of Ubuntu.
The Backports PPA allows for updating to the latest version of Budgie, quickly after its release. This is similar to the Kubuntu Backports PPA which allows the same with Plasma.

The range of default apps is on the whole good, but I am not sure of the value of Terminix versus a regular Gnome Terminal. The Budgie Welcome Screen and Browser selection are very well done and great features.

Kudos to all the developers, well done and many thanks. Looking forward tot he next release
