After being based on the Ubuntu distribution for so many years, Ultimate Edition has finally switched tables and it is now built from the Linux Mint 11 (Katya) operating system, which itself is based on Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narhwal).

"Sorry for the great delay in release of Ultimate Edition 3.0. [...] Many have questioned the process that was the development cycle for 3.0, but at the end of the day we are releasing a smooth stable OS worthy of the Ultimate Edition moniker."

Yes, you heard that right, Ultimate Edition 3.0 is now based on Linux Mint and features the GNOME 2.32.1 classic interface and it's dubbed ULTAMINT.

Ultimate Edition 3.0 includes software repositories from Getdeb, Linux Mint and Ubuntu, providing a comprehensive software package. It is distributed as a Live DVD ISO image for the 32-bit architecture only!

While Ultimate Edition 3.1 is on its way, the current release includes lots and lots of applications, everything one needs and more! For more information take a look at our Ultimate Edition 3.0 screenshot tour!

"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." - said Glenn Cady (TheeMahn) in the official announcement.

About Ultimate Edition

Created by TheeMahn, Ultimate Edition is a Linux distribution based on the Linux Mint operating system, which is based on Ubuntu OS. It comes bundled with a lot more apps and tools than Ubuntu and Linux Mint, and it also has a very unique and somewhat over-the-top visual style.

Ultimate Edition was previously known as Ubuntu Ultimate, but started life as Ubuntu Christmas Edition. There is also a specialized version, the Ultimate Edition Gamers, which includes all the applications from the Ultimate Edition and many Linux games.
