As an Xfce fanboy I really am coming to like the Budgie implementation of Gnome3, but Solus isn't mature enough for my needs yet, so Ubuntu Budgie fills the gap very nicely.

Pros:
Rich Gnome3 content
Usable desktop
Very customisable
Ubuntu repos and community support

Cons:
None for me

Pros: Nice alternative to Solus Budgie 3.999

Cons: Slightly bloated with the Ubuntu/Solus Gnome apps. 1,1GB at idle

A wonderful DE! I was so excited to see this after using Solus Budgie for a while. I like the Budgie DE but didn't want to learn new terminal commands for Solus. This is now my choice for Ubuntu based distros. Linux Mint with Cinnamon is a close second.
