About this Episode

While Fedora Linux defaults to the Gnome desktop, there are multiple different versions of Fedora Workstation, one of those Spins is based off of the Budgie Desktop. In this episode, we'll talk to one of the developers about Budgie, its history, its relationship to Fedora, and what new features are coming!


The Fedora Podcast features interviews and talks with the people who make the Fedora community awesome! These folks work on new technologies found in Fedora, produce the distro itself, or help put Fedora into the hands of users. There is so much going on in Fedora that it takes a whole podcast series!
