    I have had trouble getting Vulkan to work on Solus so I switched to Ubuntu budgie a few days ago.
    Have to admit, it's pretty decent for an ubuntu distro.

    It's the first distro where I have managed to game above 60fps at all times too, with no stutters. Though this could be due to the new nvidia drivers.

    It's a desktop environment, i.e an alternative to MATE, GNOME, KDE, Cinnamon etc. Fairly lightweight without being stripped down.
