Why such a jump?

by on Mar.04, 2017, under Ultimate Edition

Ultimate Edition 5.1 to Ultimate Edition 5.4? New hardware is my #1 concern.

Ultimate Edition 5.4?

Everything is going to be replaced, minus tower and water cooling. You do know the Ryzen has set new world records. On water I will get no where close to that, however bang for the buck?

Have a AMD RyZen? Download Ultimate Edition 5.4 Alpha, a Mate based Operating System today… I want to say Ultimate Edition 5.1 was phenomenal success ~ 30,000 downloads at roughly 3GB in short order.

You guys are awesome,

RyZen into the future

by on Feb.09, 2017, under Ultimate Edition

Intelligence based on 02/23/17:
As many of you know and I have not hid in any way I have stock in AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) and have since Nov 21st last year (2016) for free. How? I gave a former co-worker a stock-tip at then $6.50 a share (he actually got in at $6.97) for $30,000, 4,038 shares. 2 days later he had made roughly $7,000.00 & offered to give me $5,000.00 of it. I turned down the money in exchange for stock in AMD. I have built literally 1,000’s of computers using AMD hardware in the past. I no longer build computers except for myself and family. I have became quite a buff in understanding what is going on with AMD in my best interest as well as co-worker #1 & #2 (bought in for the second time yesterday 02/08/17 – original date of article).

Before I continue, I want to make it explicitly known the below information is from my perspective beneficial to all parties involved on the user level as it will stimulate competition in the computer market. From the companies involved a totally different story as each company tries to cut each others throats. I am going to do my best due diligence to avoid speculation at least from the factual point of things. Rumors are just that, a a ride on the Hype train & should be taking as a grain of salt.


  • Ryzen (pronounced RYE zen) is an AMD CPU aimed at the server, desktop, workstation, media center PC and all-in-one markets. … Codenamed Zen in development, Ryzen is the first major architectural change for AMD since Bulldozer.
  • AMD is going to release a new Processor dubbed RyZen was called Zen in production
  • AMD is going to release a new Graphics Card codenamed Vega
  • AMD is going to release a new Processor based on RyZen as a APU (RyZen with Integrated Vega graphics) for both mainstream & OEM (XBox Scorpio etc.)
  • AMD is going to release a new Processor for the server family up to 64 Cores and 128 threads codenamed Naples


I have see this on a personal level as a pre-sale. #1 sold CPU on Amazon was a AMD 1800X (until they sold out in less then 1 hour), #2 Intel 7700 Kaby Lake, 1700X #3, #4 AMD 1700 (non black) One Million units I still have not unloaded stock, nor have I started spending money yet.  I got a Google check 2 days ago & I am sitting on it. I have considered buying a 1000 Watt power supply (PSU) Titanium Full modular way overkill as it uses much less juice.  I will wait, I suggest you do the same. Do not think AMD has inability of capacitance to produce chips. Their agreement with Globalfoundries Wafer agreement allows AMD to goto other foundries (Samsung for example & tested) if they can not keep up with demand. I have done my homework.

  • Within 1 hour of release of pre-orders of 1800X sold out #1 sold on Amazon (still will not see it until March 2nd)
  • 1700X – the "Black Edition" of the 1700X also now sold out on a pre-order.
    1700 you can still pre-order, I am shocked I can still pre-order it. Perhaps it is the lack of motherboards also sold out almost as fast as it happened?

The motherboard and cooling means more then the CPU itself a good “BIN” and cooling means everything. No, I will not run Liquid Nitrogen, happy with my water cooling & used to hate it water and electronics do not mix. I have had my AMD 8150 8 core “Black Edition” Bulldozer for years, evidently called “X” now a 125 watt at 4.8 GHZ stable (a stock 3.6 GHZ chip), what is a 95 Watt 4.0 GHZ CPU going allow me to do? 4.0 GHZ turbo does not mean a 5GHZ 8 core. I will post a video of me building it & a Naples if I can hold out. I am like a kid in a candy store when it comes to computers.


  • 17 Versions of the RyZen (I am not happy about – confusion to the consumer)
  • RyZen will be released March 2nd, wait for benches of the RyZen to hit the net (Do not buy a RyZen until you know it to be true, just trying to be unbiased).
  • How much will a RyZen Cost?
  • Is Intel just going to kick back (I do not think it will be enough) & relax?

AMD, has awoke the sleeping Giant, from a consumers perspective it is all good. From a Investor’s perspective in AMD once again all good. I do feel sorry for NVidia <<- Sorry for being bias here and Intel as they have to explain why they have to sell chips for nothing & lose market share. Oh. why I wrote this post to begin with Linux kernel 4.10+ and above has support for RyZen. I am preparing for an upgrade all at cost of unloading AMD shares to buy AMD hardware 😉

Work in progress.

I think I will hang in there and unload stocks for a complete RyZen, Vega system on the desktop PC side & the server side if I have the capital. Software development does not stop here, I would rather be a step ahead then a step behind. Hang in there. Would it not be awesome to see it saying using 128 cores and a 1/4 of a second later done? I would begin writing software to loop perfection. Oh, that is right I have already. To be honest with you is a prediction (TheeMahn says) and is in the speculation department will not touch AMD until 1st QTR 2018. As Intel is working hard on 10 nm AMD is setting up 7 nm in the US of A.

Typically the smaller the die the less juice it sucks and more efficient it is. See if I am right. Intel will be grabbing at strawls to catch up
I have seen this before. I was around when Intel and AMD both used the same socket. I am actually hoping they can see through their issues.

Hacking is not the answer.

by on Jan.21, 2017, under Ultimate Edition

I am a lucky candidate, I have in the past shut down multiple servers. Done multiple things I am not currently proud of, some personal. Never was I caught over a decade ago, wrote software to do so. I will say this, I am thankful I have turned over a new leaf and help people. There is nothing to be gained in malicious activities. We have a few people on board that today do the same. It is only a matter of time, you will be caught. I will not turn you in. I want you to stop and work for the better of mankind. Utilize your intelligence for the positive.

Cracking is actually the proper term by todays standards. If it feels so good as endocrines cycle your system, you are doing wrong. Feels so good to be bad. Quit now. Feels 10 times better to help someone.

Nothing like transfer.

by on Jan.19, 2017, under Ultimate Edition

I will call Ultimate Edition 5.1 success. I typically look at downloads as an overall basis of a successful release (roughly 100 Terabytes in less then a week). There are many factors that adjust this value. I have in the past tried to place individuals as my repository managers 0 and I do mean 0 wanted that job once they knew the damage they could cause the individual that installed we will call Ultimate Edition 5.1 as an example. Less then a week 12,000+ are running it. The Ramifications become massive as you look back and see a few 100,000 people running an older O/S. Millions overall, I have taken matters into my own hands and elected software to do so for me. You know better at least some do as Repostorm.

When you remove the human mistake factor, software does not care. You will see emerging technologies doing the same Artificial Intelligence has stopped me from continuing forward with Repostorm. I did not expect AI to step to the plate so early & would gladly turn over Repostorm to AI. I may buy technologies to do so for me to enhance the storm. The end result is to make the world a better error free place. Please bare with me as transitions take place.

Please feel free to post comments of your experience with Ultimate Edition 5.1. User feed back = better Operating Systems in the future.

Ultimate Edition 5.1 Final

by on Jan.12, 2017, under Ultimate Edition

Welcome aboard Ultimate Edition 5.1, 2 Operating Systems released in a week, not to mention new software. A day of Vacation has paid off. Let’s do some math. 4.2 GB X 4,193 downloads in less then a week I believe is roughly 17610 Gigabytes of transfer, 17 Terabytes in 5 days, thanks Sourceforge once again. I look for Ultimate Edition 5.1 to fold that. No screenie, I am hoping to lessen their burden.  This I did not know until today, I am the #1 downloaded KDE project on sourceforge.  Did you know I hate KDE?

Shall We play a Game?

by on Jan.07, 2017, under Ultimate Edition

    Uploading as I type is Ultimate Edition 5.0 Gamers. This is not a pretty Operating System, it was developed for one reason and one reason only & that is to play games. Wayne Mcginnis & I have stripped the O/S to the bone. I have been writing packages to break the 4.3 GB barrier for gaming. I think you will be pleasantly surprised in the Quantity / Quality.

    You will not find a spreadsheet writer in this O/S. I highly suggest you install the operating system as well as graphic drivers before playing around. Some games will work w/o graphic drivers, the heavy ones a pre-requisite. Some games will download up to an additional 5GB of data. I have warned you. I will not take the time to write a page for it. I may add a link on the gamers page, but that is as far as it goes.

    I don’t typically have time to play games, that may change in the future. With a AMD RyZen CPU & Vega GPU on my Itinerary. Both free, I will sell AMD stock to get both for free. I paid 0 for the stock is how it is free. Let me try and queue you in. I convinced a co-worker to invest in AMD back when it was $6.97 a share November 21st I believe at $30,000 (4,043 shares). I did not ask for money. He offered me 2 days later $5,000 for the tip. I turned it down. I wanted stock. I have stock in AMD. I know where they are going. As a bonus to him I will tell him when to sell.

    Anyway, we are here to game right?

    I have lost 12 TB of data as of recent, please allow at least a hour or 2 to upload. I will never buy a Seagate drive again. 1Year warantee, 12 TB gone. 1 Year and 3 months later drive #1 gone, a month or 2 later #2 gone. Only $500 get me? Information is priceless. I have had 10 year warantee SSD’s fail on me. Redundancy is a huge factor. Clouds have quit on me. It is BS to charge a guy $250 for a 6TB drive and only warrant it for 1 year. Like clock work gone. You think I would be more so pissed over the SSD with the 10 year warantee, no it did not take any data I cared about. SSD’s are small today, tomorrow wont be. Both of those 6TB drives do not have the capacitance of what is coming solidly. ETA 11 Minutes on the upload. 4th time I have uploaded it this eve.

Just saying,

Is Alpha better then none?

by on Oct.13, 2016, under Ultimate Edition

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

test1 push future

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.

A new twist to the old.

by on Sep.11, 2016, under Ultimate Edition

    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.

6.5 years

by on Aug.05, 2016, under Ultimate Edition

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.

Did you say PI?

by on Jul.28, 2016, under Ultimate Edition

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.
