On the perfect way.
We just need more desktop indicator like sysmonitor

The only issue I had with Budgie was the DropBox Desktop Indicator Icon not loading properly. Thankfully, there was a fix for the issue. I like Budgie and with the end of Unity I had to start looking for a new desktop. I like it for the simple design and it just works for me.

I have had it for only a couple of weeks, but so far it has worked very well. The theme is very consistent and the desktop looks great. The only issue that I have encountered is a problem with connecting to wifi, but that comes from Ubuntu in general and is easily fixed.
