I stumbled onto Ubuntu Ultimate on the Linuxtracker website. It's basically Ubuntu with many additional apps. There is also a Gamers version that's loaded with games. I've messed with it a little. I'm actually going to use the Mint menu/utilities and then the remastersys script to see what I can get.
I applaud Clem for making his apps deb files that can be installed into other distros. I've started to really enjoy the slab menu with the Favourites pane.
Just thought I would make everyone aware of yet another set of distros to play with. It never ends!
I'm anxiously awaiting Ubuntu Studio
