Ultimate Edition: So far so good.....

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 60.242.136.10] on June 07, 2008 07:43 AM
Installed UE only last night.If I'd have read the above review and comments before hand then it may never have been installed.
I write this using UE. Yes, the default colour scheme was hard on my eyes but a quick tweak to something a little easier took seconds....and as I'm new this, then anyone can manage to do this.
I read lots of reviews but have never previously left a comment, however the above comments seem to have missed the intention of UE
My take on UE was what is described on the UE site.
To paraphrase, Ubuntu with with additional software options, codecs, drivers already installed together with new art work.
This is all I was expecting, and this is what was received.
So, if you are looking for a pre-configured Ubuntu then, admittedly only 12 hours usage later, it appears you could do a lot worse.
Unfortunately Hardy had an accident and had to be removed from our PC.
With two young kids needing constant attention, I don't currently have the time to re-intall Hardy and get all the non-supplied stuff going again.
No, it is not hard, but I am time poor. UE was installed and going in 30mins with everything I need.

And no, in case you are wondering as this comment is so different from all of the above, I don't have any connection whatsoever with the folk at UE.
