I was surprised that Ikey just started composing the Budgie 11 code recently. I understand that because the team has to deal with Budgie 10.
But hey, Budgie will finally be free from GTK+, and Ikey will have full control of the desktop environment. Is Budgie 11 going to have a new file explorer, new system settings app, and have most other core apps rewritten? Or will Nautilus and GNOME core apps still be used?
If Budgie 11 uses a new file explorer, I suggest naming it "Galleon", a kind of sailing ship.
