Good things come to those who wait…

by on Dec.06, 2011, under Linux, Themes, Ubuntu, Ultimate Edition

Sorry for the great delay in release of Ultimate Edition 3.0. I have been plagued with both physical and emotional trauma, you can rest assured a snowball effect is about to transpire. I have built UE 3.1 (still needs some work) & our dev team has developed 3.2, just waiting for me to drop Ultimate Edition 3.1. Time is a commodity that I have not had on my side. I may soon get some time off for the holidays and perhaps change that.

Ultimate Edition 3.0 is unlike any previous release. Ultimate Edition 3.0 was built from Linux Mint 11 "Katya", which in itself was built from Ubuntu Natty 11.04. I hope I did not lose anyone there ;) A slew of issues have been resolved. I have dubbed this release ULTAMINT. It is a real piece of eye-candy & has a comprehensive software package. I have included repositories from Getdeb, Ubuntu and Linuxmint. If there is something missing you just can’t live without, just a few clicks of a mouse away. On behalf of the UE Dev team please enjoy Ultimate Edition 3.0.

TheeMahn,

    Greetings from The South THEE! I hope you get to enjoy your Holidays as you would want and I am grateful for the work you do on Ultimate Ed. As I understand, You began this work tweaking Ubuntu with Christmas Themes etc. This season is upon us again and I hope you have joy and many new blessings in the coming year.

    I was over the top crazy about EU 2.8/2.9, everything worked out of the box, When EU 3.0 lite came out I downloaded and installed it. I didn’t like it. I went back to 2.9, Last month I downloaded Commodore OS Vision That has everything rolled into one. A Brilliant distro Just like UE 2.9 was,

    My eyes lit up today when I saw EU 3.0 Final had been released, I rushed home and downloaded it, Made the Live disk and checked it out, Rather than knock your efforts, all I will say is sorry, I won’t be installing UE 3.0 Final. much to my regret I will be sticking with Commodore OS Vision, May I wish you all the best. Have a great Christmas holiday thanks for 2.9 that was a great pleasure to use,

      Can I share a secret with you? I was contacted to write their O/S – the Commodore O/S I refer to. I tried to contact the office directly in Florida and was referred to Leo of your O/S of Australia. I quit looking into it, I will say no more & there is much more to learn ;) If you only knew.

        I wish you had been the one working on the Commodore OS Vision, I think it would have been a great job for you (Paid of course) I do love the Commodore OS, and I love every version of UE that I have used, (I do not remember the version number, but it was a LONG time ago).

        I dual boot Commodore OS and UE 3. I love the nuances of both, and appreciate them as art and fun to use. thank you for your dedication and talent that you share freely.

        Finally will UE 3 (or future 3.1 or 3.2) have a 64-bit version? not a show stopper, but with all of my virtualization for school, access to my full 16 gig of RAM is a huge help.

        Thanks again!! you are the man, THEEMAN

        As i installed CommodoreOS 2 weeks ago i thought that it had some strong resemblance with Ultimate 2.9, especially the animation C64 logo… I would only like to know why TheeMahn stop looking into it. Is it a security matter? Just curious about it… Installed Ultimate 3.0 last evening… Still a fantastic work of art and complete distro.

        Regards,

      I agree with you – I am waiting for the 64 bit version. Right now I am running 2.9, 64 bit on my desktop and laptop computers and they run great. I have tried quite a few other distros on my computers, but far and away UE is the best.

    Congrats on the new release of U.E. I’m just sorry that I won’t be able to use it or recommend it to anyone else to use. You see, I was a Mint user and advocate until Mr. Clement Lefebvre asked that anyone who didn’t agree with his views on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, to please cease from using his OS. I don’t necessarily have a problem with him not wanting those who disagree with his political views to benefit from his hard work, but I can’t help but to wonder which group of people will he ask not to use his free and open software next. U.E. is your baby and I am extremely happy and thankful to be able to use and recommend it. Just not any versions built off Mr. Clement Lefebvre’s distro. Thanks for U.E and all the hard work that goes into making it truly the Ultimate Linux distro.

      I not only embrace the world when it comes to UE, we have a forum for Israel. Not much of mint is left one of the first things I did when I built it was to remove mint based software. If you click on your system monitor it will say Ultimate Edition not Linux Mint. I have been to Haifa and love Israelis one country that liked Americans and I their people.

    Is there a torrent for this? Is bandwidth an issue with sourceforge? Maybe we could help?
