Ultimate Edition Drops Ubuntu for Linux Mint as Build Base

Post by Lumenary »

Hello Folks,



DistroWatch and Google Trends statistics aside, here's a bit more evidence that not everyone is happy with the actions Canonical has taken of late with regard to its flagship distribution: The Ultimate Edition team has just released version 3.0, and instead of basing their latest rendition directly on Ubuntu, TheeMahn (Glenn Cady) & Crew decided to switch to Linux Mint 11 ("Katya") as the foundation for their everything-but-the-kitchen-sink respin:
In honor of its Linux Mint underpinnings, Ultimate Edition 3.0 has been dubbed "ULTAMINT" by its creators.



Best Regards,

Bet they end up "ultimately" basing it on LMDE !

Maybe not the next one, but they will (my opinion).

Good hunting.
