Pros:
Not available

Cons:
Unsuitable for my hardware with 1GB of ram

Visually pleasant but nothing which can't be done with XFCE, a lot less resources hungry DE, with a little tweaking.

In 6 words?
Time wasted to reinvent the wheel.

The same visual result could already be reached with Xubuntu as base even if Ubuntu is unsuitable for also not too old hardware.

GNU/Linux world offer other better and which respects the base philosophy, avoid eWaste and help everyone despite economic capabilities to use a pc.

Maintains all the features I like from Ubuntu, but with a more elegant budgie interface that I prefer over standard gnome. Feels like a polished and more powerful version of Elementary OS with less bugs and better support.
