Ultimate Edition 5.4, the first Linux distribution based on Ubuntu 17.04

Ultimate Edition 5.4

Developer TheeMahn recently announced the release of Ultimate Edition 5.4, the latest stable version of its Ubuntu-based operating system designed for beginners of the Linux ecosystem.

Ultimate Edition 5.4 arrives about 3 months after the release of the previous stable version of this distribution, specifically Ultimate Edition 5.1, which was based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) and had the Linux Kernel 4.4.

Developed with TheeMahn's own Tmosb 1.9.8 software, Ultimate Edition 5.4 is based on the newly released Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus), so that incorporates Kernel 4.10 and updated graphics stack with Mesa 17.0.3 3D graphics library and graphics server X.Org Server 1.19.3.

"Ultimate Edition 5.4 was developed from Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zapus using a combination of Tmosb and handwork," stated TheeMahn in the announcement of the new version, adding that "Tmosb is also included in this version, which will allow you to do the same, since it has the capacity to build more than 3000 operating systems ”.

Ultimate 5.5 is already in development and will arrive with an ARM edition

The most interesting change in this version is the inclusion of Budgie desktop environment developed by the Solus Project, although it is not enabled by default. However, most of the Ultimate Edition 5.4 components and applications were updated to the latest versions available at launch.

You can download the Ultimate Edition 5.4 ISO image from this link for 64-bit systems. Meanwhile, we expect the arrival of Ultimate Edition 5.5 in a few months, when it will also feature an ARM edition.

Ultimate Edition 5.4 file has a size of 4GB and according to the developer, the download could be slow until the file has been copied to the 32 servers that TheeMahn uses to distribute this edition.

    hello good afternoon, if I let you install version 5.4? I have tried to install it on 4 different PCs, I have erased the partitions (to start from scratch without interference from windows or other linux systems) and I have downloaded the image 3 times at the moment, flash the usb to install it from there and burned it to a DVD -rom and on all occasions it is installed and when it starts it is "thinking" without finishing loading the desktop.

    I have tried on ram computers: 4gb, 16gb and 500gb hard drives, I do not know if the images that I download or something is wrong, as extra data I have used ultimate edition from past versions without any problem, only with this one has happened to me: / 🙁
