Ultimate Edition, first released in December 2006, is a fork of Ubuntu.

Ultimate Edition is an operating system based on Ubuntu, which is itself based on Debian. The creators aim was to create a better user experience and improved usability.


Ultimate Edition started off as Ubuntu Christmas Edition, and was made as a Christmas present for the Ubuntu community. The creator, TheeMahn, then created Ubuntu Ultimate 1.1.


Ultimate Edition has more software pre-installed and ready for use even in the Live CD/DVD environment than Ubuntu. Ubuntu Ultimate 1.2 was released shortly after 1.1 with even more new software. To answer the call of gamers, TheeMahn then built Ubuntu Ultimate Gamers Edition.


On October 18, 2007, TheeMahn received an e-mail from Canonical asking not to use the Ubuntu name or logo due to violation of trademark policy. Ubuntu Ultimate then became Ultimate Edition.


The goal of the project is to create a complete, seamlessly integrated, visually stimulating, and easy-to-install operating system.


Single-button upgrade is one of several special characteristics of this distribution.


Other main features include custom desktop and theme with 3D effects, support for a wide range of networking options, including WiFi and Bluetooth, and integration of many extra applications and package repositories.


Update:


Ultimate Edition Glenn Cady has announced the release of Ultimate Edition 2.8, an Ubuntu-based distribution on a DVD with extra applications, media codecs and hardware drivers: "Ultimate Edition 2.8 was built off Ubuntu 10.10. All packages upgraded. The software you have come to love with previous editions of Ultimate Edition have been also pre-installed along with 12 new ones. At time of build Cinelerra and Wine-Doors were broken and did not make the cut. I also want to apologise for the delay and at the same time thank my admin for the delay of the Ultimate Edition 2.8 s release. Many issues have been squashed in 2.8 because of the delay. Cowboy's handiwork at the theme has won the poll and will be deemed 'Cowboy Blue'. Don't like the blue theme? There are 107 themes to choose from, it does not have to be dark. I have included a now enhanced, color and font selectable Conky script I wrote that will generate as per computer."

Here is the brief
release announcement.
