It has been almost 3 months since we had the last news from Ultimate Edition, the operating system based on Ubuntu and Linux Mint that now includes a new version especially dedicated to gamers: Ultimate Edition 5.0 Gamers.
Its developer, TheeMahn, wants to offer in this version something that the Ultimate Edition (or Ubuntu Ultimate Edition, as it is formally known) already provided, and is an OOBE experience (Out Of the Box Experience) completes its users. Let's see if he's done it with Ultimate Edition 5.0 Gamers.
The ultimate goal of Ultimate Edition is to offer users an operating system that is simple to install and update, where they exist desktop effects, applications and support for the latest drivers of devices without the need for subsequent tasks.
Based on Ubuntu LTS 16.04 (Xenial Xerus) and kernel 4.4, this Ultimate Edition 5.0 Gamers employs a lightweight desktop Xfce 4.12 to reduce the resource consumption of the graphical environment. Regarding the software that it includes, we will find pre-installed up to 50 Linux game titles for audiences of all ages, including the popular 0 AD, Armagetron Advanced, Capitalism, Crack Attack, Defendguin or LBreakout2 among others.
As it could not be missing in an operating system for gamers, it is included the Steam app, which offers the digital purchase and download of titles acquired through that platform. The environment is completed by a set of emulators like DOSBox, ScummVM and Wine.
The Ultimate Edition 5.0 Gamers image is now available for download from its own page websites both 64-bit and 32-bit editions. You will also find a section dedicated to Topics with which to modify the appearance of the environment. As it is a Live-CD, you will have the opportunity to test this operating system first before finally installing it on your computer. If you consider yourselves true gamers, you have no excuse not to give Ultimate Edition 5.0 Gamers a chance.
