Uploading as I type Ultimate Edition 5.1. Not 5.0.1, huge difference It is actually one step up over what I currently run. I run 5.1, however Mate based. Yes, you can do the same. First thing I did after installing:
sudo apt-get install mate-desktop-environment
This is a Alpha Ladies & Gentlemen. It does not have a wallpaper, nor does it include all the software you love YET! Gamers is coming, we as an Entity have a few things up our sleeves.
Just can’t wait, please understand an Alpha.
I updated Ultimate Edition 5.0 to Ultimate Edition 5.0.1 it is Long Term Supported (LTS) and released an Ultimate Edition 5.0 for the x86 (32bit) users based on Mate this weekend. 2 Operating Systems this weekend. Yes, I know there are many users that want to get their hands on Ultimate Edition 5.1. O.K. first we are playing with LTS releases. I have been playing with Ultimate Edition 5.1 based on KDE for a long minute, when I released Ultimate Edition 5.0 I was already running Ultimate Edition 5.1. I actually have a Ultimate Edition 5.3. Newer, is not necessary better. That could change as we advance. I want to make things very apparent 5.0.1 is not 5.1 has no KDE in 5.0.1 that is. You KDE buffs will have to wait. I have been running Ultimate Edition 5.1 for a long minute, didn’t I already say that? I would like to fix issues before release. If I was you I would wait patiently.
Mean while, FineTuch, Mr. Breeg and I dropped Laminate flooring in the house, did I mention I have 3 job titles 😉 I have a Home Security System / Home Automation system dropping to the house this coming week, my job is never done. I am going to place Home Automation in my house. 300 Devices in total. I will speak and the house will listen. I will write software to accelerate that factor. I love the Open source movement, did you know you can do the same with a Raspberry PI? Google it.
I seen today we lost our Australian friends down under. Blackwolf’s Ultimate Edition forum is no more. He remains our top dog on our main forum. I wish he would have expressed monetary problems to me, thus I assume. It is certainly not free to run a website, I can assure you with the highest regard he will be missed. If I can fix it I will.
Let’s get the introduction out of the way:
Many will think an introduction is unnecessary, I am fairly well known in the Linux community. We get new users all the time, so I do deem it necessary to introduce myself. I am Glenn Cady better known via my nickname “TheeMahn” on the Internet. I have been writing software in excess of 30 years steadily approaching 35 years. While it may appear to the untrained eye I have earned the nickname, many things happen behind the scenes that most users are not aware of. I would like to take the time to make apparent.
Ultimate Edition as a whole has tons of beta testers (local and worldwide), moderators and administrators that not only test the Operating Systems that I build or that software I have written builds for them. They additionally test software I have written and take the time to answer your questions while I am busy programming and do so for free. I do want to give the Ultimate Edition community kudos, for allowing me to my job.
I will be updating Ultimate Edition Forum with information as I push forward.
Pictures say a thousand words, surely a video says a million 😉
I wrote some code for the PI, which works perfectly extracting a PI image & it does not care who made it.
I have successfully built a Ultimate Edition 5.0 PI image, it is simply a matter of time to write code to re-build the image.
theemahn@ultimate:~$ uname -a

Distributor ID: Ultimate_Edition_Lite
Description: Ultimate Edition 5.0 LTS
My building of images has been hit with a miss, extraction flawless 5 at a time. Ultimate Edition PI is coming. This also opens doors for phones.
Stay Tuned, I want XMAS in July.
If you do not follow me on Facebook, Allow me to repeat myself: Rasberry PI 3 Class B has arrived today. It begins I have played with it, I can not imagine how many units have been sent back. The unit does not function until it has a viable O/S pre-loaded on a sdcard. I had it plugged into projection initially, did not boot with or without a card. Hooked it to a regular monitor HDMI to Dsub (9pin), thought I had a bad unit.
Hooked it to a 4K monitor through Eport, also failure. Loaded a Sdcard. Seen my first green light on the board, still nothing on my screen. Ripped the HDMI out of my PC shoved it into the board, guess what worked. I have big plans coming for the board. I will have to say my initial impression all the above behind wireless is crap. I am used to not waiting for anything in the era of computers, technology or wireless.
I have been told if I would have hard wired it, it is snappy. We will soon see. I ordered a Main board for an older Quad Core I have had sitting here for months on JUL 02, did not care when it arrived here, from China ETA: Wed, Jul 20 – Fri, Aug 05. Has 4 sata ports, the PI 3 has 4 USB ports To me it looks like the PI 3 is fighting a loosing battle. I do love speed in data transfer. One way or the other one of the two units will feed my house.
When I reboot or test an operating system I just built, people flock to my man-cave and ask me what are you doing? I just lost my movie I was watching, this will stop. I am going to break the chain. One way or the other.
I have since ordered a 32GB Samsung EVO+ to give the PI 3 Class B a chance, the best it can take. I initially intend for the PI3 or the Mainboard (both quad cores) I have en-route to replace my NAS (Network Attached Storage) system. It is pretty hard to replace the JackHammer (same rig that builds Ultimate Edition). I will blog about the outcome it in the future.
Just keeping you in the loop,
I am working on Ultimate Edition 5.1 also a LTS for you KDE buffs:
Just can’t wait to try out the theme? Download Ultimate Edition 5.1 Theme. I created the wallpaper using nothing but Gimp and a new Gimp scripts package I summoned up. Time to load Ultimate Edition 5.1 out to a thumb drive and ensue testing. It is coming.
Fantastic success on the first release of Ultimate Edition 5.0 Lite based on Mate. It has been downloaded 20,000 times in about a week. Additionally, what shocked me to see the 8 in one BluRay pounded over 2,000 times in a week that is a bunch of data flow when considered it is 23 Gigabytes with 18,000 or so X 3 Gigabytes as well.
I have been busy. I have dropped a new Ultimate Edition 5.0 LTS Lite. Hand built for the most part based on XFCE, smaller, tighter and faster:
Distro: Ultimate Edition
LTS (Long term supported): Yes
Data Preparer: <theemahn@JackHammer>
Data Publisher: TMOSB <http://os-builder.com/>
Default Desktop Environment(DE): XFCE
Installed Size: 6,067,134,464 bytes.
Ultimate Edition 5.0 “Xenial Xerus” – Release x64 (20160707)
Please note: The above url, may not work if the release has not been made public.
It can be downloaded from the Ultimate Edition 5.0 Page. We are far from done, I have also been asked for a LXDE and a Cinnamon version. While I was at it I dropped a Ultimate Edition Lite 4.2.4 also a Long Term Supported release based on the Trusty tree, this will probably be the last release you see from me on the Trusty tree. I have been told it is flawless.
It does not stop there, I have ordered a Raspberry PI for development. it will be here Tuesday. Shwn Vntr (one our beta testers) and I will be constructing an PI O/S for it, he is well ahead of me now.
Big things are in works enjoy,
Fantastic release on Ultimate Edition 5.0 Lite. Downloaded in excess 10,000 times in less then a week, which boils down to roughly 30 Terabytes of transfer & thanks Sourceforge. Things are about to get off the chain. I re-wrote Tmosb to allow burning BluRays a 25 GB ISO is coming loaded with games rolling on XFCE. a stripped down O/S to allow more room for games. It to the best of my knowledge does not exist on the planet. I encourage any-one to please correct me.
Yes, I know we have a Bluray with 4 or 5 different O/S’s on one disk, this is a new animal (I think I set that milestone as well, once again please correct me if I am wrong) One operating system with a butt load of free Games. 25GB is my magic number, this time. You do know there are 100GB BluRays. I won’t say I will never release a 100 GB ISO; never is a long time, but currently see no point. I will also release a DVD based 5.0 Gamers, so don’t pull out your hair. I am just warming up.
Big things are coming, I wont stop until I hit the 25GB limit I spoke of.
Please give the servers time to mirror, it will be slow at best until that has happened.
