Since Budgie is somewhat of a GNOME Shell replacement, and expo works well in GNOME, it should be possible in Budgie. However, in GNOME expo is usually a shell extension, and shell extensions are verboten in Budgie. Another thought is the idea of compiz in Budgie, which I have not looked into.

Regards.

My Manjaro XFCE has always had Compiz (I think I'm on Manjaro's 0.9 series) installed on it.  When I added Budgie-desktop to the installation, I found that Compiz continued  to work even in Budgie -- at least the expo, cover flow and windows min/max/close effects did.  I don't really use the more complicated effects anyway.

i'm using gala on xfce , same as you i only need expo/scale feature other stuff doesn't interest me that much. imo gala fits better to xfce and i like gala's "multitasking screen" (aka expo) more. i'm just sad that many will be turned off by the Solus project because of the lack of software available and the minor bugie bugs or better said lack of features.

Dr. All-the-weird-Gnome-offsprings ??? :o ;) ;D

I have a Chinese-speaking parrot, what else can I say?  ;D

Seriously though, I like watching Budgie as it grows into an Xfce-like lightweight interface to GNOME/GTK3. That's the direction I envision it going.

I like Deepin, too, and have struggled to implement it on Manjaro NET and Arch bases since it first became available as an Unofficial Arch repo a couple years back. And never favorably, since up until now it just would not coalesce. Not even if I glared really hard at it. ;D

So Bernhard, you and Stefano and all the work you've put into your projects have made it really, really easy for people like me to play with them both now--I am so tired of all the old standard DE/WMs--that I feel like a kid in a candy shop. What also impresses me greatly, is the cooperation and teamwork that you and Stefano have demonstrated individually in your work with other members of the Linux developer community. You two are aces in my book. :D

Right this moment, I'm back in GNOME. Other than the fact I look like a Gnome, I miss it's capabilities when I am not using it. :D

My final thoughts are thus: If I'm weird, then what do you call the people that develop these "All-the-weird-Gnome-offsprings?" Hmm? ;)

And regarding simgin? Disregard that little heathen. :D :D :D

Regards.
P.S. I really do have a Chinese speaking parrot. Her name is Amy Lu.

I looked at tweak tools desktop & didn't see that option. I'll look again I guess.
I found it, I needed to turn on the master switch top right!! D'oh!

Somewhat off-topic: Did any of you see the Solus OS review on Distrowatch? What are your thoughts?
Are the same "glitches" seen for Manjaro budgie?

No, they aren't. The problems mentioned in the review are USB stick not booting and package manager misbehaving. Manjaro Budgie Edition boots ok and the package manager is the same as on other Manjaro editions. I have different problems, see the neighbouring thread: https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=29774.msg248576#msg248576

We should prolly discuss this in the 16.01 RC....

I believe Budgie is better on an Arch base than on a Solus base, and Stefano's version is better than Solus'. My own opinion is that Ikey should pick one or the other--Solus or Budgie--and work on that exclusively. But Ikey takes really big bites and I've already pissed him off once, so I will not be suggesting anything to him. ;)

My preference is he work on Budgie, since I am in no ways straying from an Arch base for any man's DE. Har! :D

There will be porting problems if he strays too far from GNOME and codes a new DE. IMHO.

Found my input method was set to Italian with an English install. Didn't notice it until the youth was using Google docs on Firefox.

@c00ter I think Ikey should develop the Budgie DE only and work with Manjaro to deliver the best possible user experience :) Imagine! Aaah, one can dream.
I'm thinking of formatting my Multimedia PC, which is currently running Manjaro XFCE. I'm contemplating installing Manjaro Cinnamon, Budgie or Deepin.
Scared of breakages and don't know which one would be the most "stable". I don't know.haha
