"Earlier this week I wrote a quick look over on EOL about Super OS 10.10. Super OS…well…it didn't exactly live up to its name, though it does have its place among the many Ubuntu remasters out there. I ran into another distro though that does a more credible job of living up to its name. Ultimate Edition 2.8 is the latest release of yet another Ubuntu-based distro.
"As you can tell by the name, there's very little about Ultimate Edition that's subtle. It could rightfully be described as Ubuntu on steroids, lots and lots and lots of steroids. This distro is on so many steroids that this is the first time I've actually been scared to write a review of a distro, roid rage and all that. Heh.
"Before I get into the review, let me do a little housekeeping. I've shrunk the screenshots a tad bit so they aren't quite as overwhelming to the text, and I've added a breadcrumb trail to the images on the gallery page. So you can easily find your way back to the first page of the review if you happen to be browsing screenshots. Each screenshot now has a caption displayed within the review. So if you're somebody that likes to hop to the image gallery page and browse around, you'll be in good shape."
