Meet Ubuntu Satanic Edition Version 666

An interesting name for a dark themed Linux distribution

Ubuntu Satanic Edition 666 is a Linux distribution based on two different versions of Ubuntu, 10.10 and 11.04, and comes in two distinct flavors.

Ubuntu Satanic Edition hasn't been updated in almost a year, but the distribution provides an enticing proposition. It seems that Satan himself hates Unity, so the developers of Ubuntu Satanic Edition provide a distro featuring the pinnacle of Gnome 2 development.

The first version is Ubuntu Satanic Edition Live (Undead) CD, which is based on last iteration of Ubuntu to use Gnome 2 exclusively, Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat).

“Maybe Unity will buff up to this standard one day, but until then why struggle with lack of features or mess with extensions which give you almost what Gnome 2 offered,” states the official website.

The second version is called The Ubuntu Satanic (Undead) DVD and is based on Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal). This version of Ubuntu does come with Unity, but it also offers a fall back to a proper, “classic” Gnome 2 interface using a simple menu on the login screen.

It also contains all the crushing metal music which has ever been bundled with SE, an awesome OS plus 3 neck-straining albums, all on one DVD image.

The reason these versions are called Satanic is because they feature really dark themes, “plunging your desktop into depths of Hell, while the ray-traced screensaver keeps your PC looking evil even when you're not using it.” At least this is what the developers claim.

More details about this interesting distribution can be found on the official website.

“Woe to you, Oh Earth and Sea,
for the Devil sends the beast with wrath
because he knows the time is short…

Let him who hath understanding reckon
the distro of the beast,
for it is a Linux distro,
its distro is Ubuntu Satanic Edition
