What is Budgie?
The Budgie Desktop is a feature-rich, modern desktop designed to keep out the way of the user. It consists of a number of components to provide a more complete desktop experience.
The main Budgie menu provides a quick and easy to use menu, suitable for both mouse and keyboard driven users. It features search-as-you-type and category based filtering.
Raven provides an all-in-one center for accessing your calendar, controlling sound input and output (including per-app volume control), media playback and more. When a MPRIS compatible player is running, such as VLC, Rhythmbox or even Spotify, a controller is made available in Raven for quick and simple control of the player, as well as data on the current media selection. Raven also enables you to access missed notifications, with the ability to swipe away individual notifications, app notifications, and all notifications.
The Budgie Run Dialog provides the means to quickly find an application in a popup window. This window by default is activated with the ALT+F2 keyboard shortcut, providing keyboard driven launcher facilities.

Said about Budgie as an alternative
Budgie has a great look and can be customized very easily. Also Budgie is a great choice for low-end devices that cannot support GNOME while still having a kind of GNOME feel.
Budgie is amazing, it's like a lighter weight, more customizable version of Gnome, with the same utilities and everything. I loved using it with Manjaro, but I switched to Fedora for unrelated reasons, and it's not in the official repositories yet (it is coming soon in Fedora 37 though) If you use a Debian (Ubuntu, Mint, etc.) or Arch (Manjaro, etc.) based distro, I highly recommend Budgie right now!
Good looking, easy to use, feature rich, low resource usage, low RAM usage,
