    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

    When a guy calls himself "The Man" and his version of Linux "Ultimate Edition" that tells you all you need to know.

    Neither Ultimate Edition 3.0 x86 gamers nor 4.6 x86 gamers will run in live mode or install. I downloaded both distros multiple times and tried to load both with no success. Do not waste your time.

    I got an email tryiung to get me to download and instrall this new ULTIMATE LniuxMint - so I had to click on just to find out I had already tried it 6 months ago tenaciously and with quite a lot of bitter disappointment. I believe that this is simply someone’s manipulated linux Mint install, which is quite pretty and in theory is a great idea ... HOWEVER ... DON"T WASTE YOUR TIME, and here is why. 1/ It won't install with your personal login name/ password/ language etc. .. JUST HIS! 2/ You can't change it to your own after installation as easily as one may think (requires changing your root folder your home folder and ALL it's permissions while outside of the operating system (Using another Distro). Not simple or easy by ANY means, 3/ He has used a large number of repositories for some awesome software BUT!!!! sadly he does not allow you to know which ones (must have took a lot of effort on his part to hide it ... WHY? well probably this is the only real big benefit of this ISO as well as the corresponding software it allows. Hmmm weird. 4/ In doing his convoluted repository he has somehow strayed from Mint's basic structure and this or some other reason leaves it UNABLE to Update with MintUpdate (which is CRUCIAL) or Ubuntu's Update Manager or any other. 5/ Related to this is, when (not if) you have problems, only he can help you. To be clear there is No HELP from Linux Mint Forums or Ubuntu forums or any other - so you will be stuck with a beautiful piece-o-shite hehe 6/ In 6 months he/she has failed any correspondence with my question - so I assume there is NO - I repeat NO support for it. Infuriating! 7/ What is odd that to do all this he/she must have fully known what he/she was doing and has strayed seriously away form the open source philosophy, he could have done it with out ANY of these problems, and for the most part it would have been much easier ... again ... WHY? In short any new Linux Users will be left first loving Linux (It is quite SEXY), then hating it because of it's MANY problems. May I suggest (no benefit to anyone's wallet) for new Linux Users (If you like this, install a clean - and of course free current Linux Mint and have fun making it look as cool and sext as this one or better yet COOLER and SEXIER. Good Luck and Enjoy! markackerman8(at)gmail(dot)com

    The review promised things that I liked but it did not deliver. It did not even install properly. None of the items on the Installer boot Menu even responded. Ubuntu installed fine! I lost a lot of time in trying the Ultimate Edition.

    I've tried several versions of Ultimate Edition. They all look nice and have good features. Works fine on LiveCD but when I install, it freezes at start-up, caps-lock button blinks, and cannot do anything else. This makes me suspicious about this distro. Same problem I have when I try UnityOz. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

    All files are incomplete, lacking ~ 0.20 L in each iso. I believe it is only released to whoever is donor site. What a shame ... I tried downloading several versions, all are corrupted. Even I did several tests by transferring files to another server, and it was confirmed, some parts are missing. Todos os arquivos estão incompletos, faltam ~0,20G em cada iso. Creio que só seja liberado pra quem é doador no site. Que pena... Eu tentei baixar várias versões, estão todas corrompidas. Inclusive, eu fiz vários testes, transferindo os arquivos pra outro servidor, e foi confirmado, faltam algumas partes. Todos los archivos están incompletos, carentes de ~ 0,20 L en cada iso. Creo que sólo se libera a quien esté zona donante. ¡Qué vergüenza ... Traté de descargar varias versiones, todas están dañados. Incluso hice varias pruebas mediante la transferencia de archivos a otro servidor, y se confirmó, faltan algunas partes. Lahat ng mga file ay hindi kumpleto, kulang ~ .20 L sa bawat iso. Naniniwala akong ito ay inilabas lamang sa kung sinuman ay donor site. Ano ang isang kahihiyan ... Sinubukan kong pag-download ng ilang mga bersyon, ang lahat ay napinsala. Kahit na ginawa ko ng ilang mga pagsubok sa pamamagitan ng paglilipat ng mga file sa isa pang server, at ito ay nakumpirma, ang ilang bahagi ay nawawala. Все файлы являются неполными, не хватает ~ 0,20 L в каждой изо. Я считаю, что только выпущена к тому, кто является донором сайт. Какой позор ... Я попытался загрузки несколько версий, все они повреждены. Даже я сделал несколько тестов скопируйте файлы на другой сервер, и было подтверждено, некоторые части отсутствуют.

    This item could be awesome but there seems to be a hidden catch, the developers deliberately hosted these ISO's of their operating system on servers specifically designed to botch downloads thereby corrupting files or users experiencing broken downloads, this was done to cause downloads to seek the purchase option so they can make money from their work therefore making this work a paid project instead of a free on. I guess I will stick with their competitors offering linux for free for real, you wont find that with these people, they are faking a fraud.... I think Artistx or Dreamlinux is so much better, heck even linux mint, the ultimate developers are on some crazy crap trying to fake their way into profits when they could just stop saying it's free and charge for it so people could properly download it, I wasted a week trying to download this product now that I feel I should be calling crap, Shame on you Ultimate developer team

    Install failed twice on a 2 year old Asus M4a88TV-EVO - AMD board. Bug reporting did not work either. Tried 64 bit 3.51 on a machine with 8 gigs ram and terabyte drive. Gets lowest ranking possible for these failures and wasting 3 hours of my time. Win7, Win8, Win Server2008R2, and Win Server 2012 installed fine on same machine.
