I love it! I jumped on the budgie hype train after I head they're switching to Qt!

(For reference on how amazing Qt is, KDE Plasma now only runs with +100 - 200mb more of ram consumption than XFCE!!)

With 8gb of ram Budgie is extremely fast and responsive, can't wait until the Qt port though!

The only criticism I have of it is that it lacks a bit in the customization department, but nothing too restrictive like P*ntheon (I DESPISE that DE)

Still lacking some customisation (or maybe I haven't worked out how to yet) but is stable and easy to setup how you want it.
