I have been following and using Ultimate Edition since version 3.x. It's the best non-Windows operating system around for those who don't like giving up all their private data to Microsof(t). All Linux/ubuntu derivatives have trouble dealing with the millions of combinations of hardware avaiable through the years. So match the version to the date of your machine, especially on laptops. Don't download the latest version and expect it to work on a 12 year old laptop. You need to pick an older version so you get the hardware matched. I like trying different versions, and I'll spend a week (after work) installing versions starting with the newest and then work my way backwards to find the newest version that does work. Also some laptops won't install from USB even though they'll boot from a USB. This makes it take even longer (burning DVDs and all), BUT, it's worth it to get a great, fast, operating system that doesn't bow to the Corporate Tyrant Microsoft. It's always frustrating to get errors but google them and you'll find the fixes. The amount of free software is worth the trouble, unless you're a windows cry-baby. The new 5.5 version looks like windows, I like the 5.0 desktop better. This is an operating system that can do 98% of what windows can and it's FREE, gives you free software, and gives you free versions to use the one you like. Ubuntu is great but one look at Ultimate Edition Desktop and you know you've found a design team in UE that knows what they're doing!
Hasn't been worth the effort since 3.0 series. Today, trying to update my old UE3.4.2 I wasted 4 hrs downloading, first, 4.2.3 lite, live dvd opened but Firefox was messed up jammed way at the top of the screen and couldn't be moved or expanded. Next 4.4 lite, burned DVD perfectly but wouldn't open as live DVD past the mdm, just flashed error. Total wasted time 5 hours plus wasted DVD's. I'll kill myself before I ever look at another Ultimate Edition again. Doesn't anyone on that team ever install these in a real world machine before release? Guess not. That's why I never send them any money. :-(((
I have been using Linux for several years now. I still think of myself as a Noob. One thing I learned early on with downloading ISO files is USE A DOWNLOAD MANAGER! All you one star people giving bad reviews because you haven’t learned that simple lesson. Ultimate Edition Linux is THEE OS! Thee Mahn and his team are striving for perfection. I myself think they are getting very close!
I'm a big fan of Ultimate Edition but not alpha:(, any information about upgraded version like Kubuntu 16.04? Malware confirmed on this site? why? Full Ultimate 4.9 is great but have problem with energy saving and must manually reset my pc
Wont even run a live version. It hung up and after the 4 hour DL I found out that this is a Freaking Alpha!!! WTF? Why not link to more stable versions too?
