As promised, have the latest and the last release in the 2.8 series of Ultimate Edition. I decided against releasing the Netbook edition; insufficient testers and no official way of testing locally.
Ultimate Edition 2.8 lite is dedicated to those with low system resources, it is also lightning fast on machines that have the resources. There are no bells and whistles here, no office, no compiz; just the pure essentials. Ultimate Edition 2.8 lite was built off Lubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat updated and upgraded, which is based on the LXDE environment. Many applications were ripped from the operating system before I even started to build. This is "lite" there will not be a 64 bit edition.
This is the first time a lite edition has been released from us, not that it has not been asked for by many for some time. I do have 2 other "specialty" releases coming, one I hope to have dropped in time for Christmas. This one may cause a ruckus in the Linux community. Please stay tuned for that one, no promises. Ultimate Edition 2.8 lite will fit on a CD. On to the details.
The following applications were removed prior to build:
Replaced by with thought and reason:
- Blue deck theme pack – Lightweight theme with scalable icons
- Terminator – Lightweight and supports splitting, better then loading a second instance.
- Gedit – Lightweight when considering the number of formats supported.
- Vlc – All in one app, video and audio are covered.
- Firefox – I know there are lighter browsers, however this one is hard to beat.
- Ultamatix – in case you want to install additional software, flash etc.
