0.0.1.4 is out!
The long awaited Ultumix 0014 is out. It comes in 3 flavors but all are based on KDE. Screenshots here. Ultumix Standard Edition: Requires: 128 MB of System RAM, 7 GBs of Hard Drive Space, and a 800 Mhz CPU or greater. Recommended: 512 MBs to 1 GB of System RAM, 25 GBs of Hard Drive Space, and a 2.0 Ghz CPU or greater. What’s Included? In Ultumix Standard Edition you will find that all of the office programs you need for home use and business use are there. There are financial programs like KmyMoney and GNUCASH which can import your quick books files as well and help you do your taxes. You can convert your Microsoft Office documents that you had on your Windows computer into .PDF files if you like or open and edit them in OpenOffice.org first. You can view and make Power Point presentations. There are a few games to help you ease your grueling work day. You can also convert Microsoft Works documents into readable, editable OpenOffice.org documents. You can hook up any digital camera or digital video recorder and save your pictures and video to your PC. With Cinelerra you can edit your video just like the big boys in Hollywood do it. Ultumix SE also has a Windows user friendly start up menu that has the programs categorized under All Programs, Accessories, ect. just like what you were use to in Windows 98. You can also run Windows 98, 2000, 95, and NT programs pretty well and some XP programs as well. You can install Printmaster. If you look for instructions on the Internet you can even install Microsoft Office 2003. Do you or your friends need an office program to open your documents you send them? Well all they need to do is go to www.openoffice.org and they can collaborate with you. This distribution comes with free 24 hour support and a chat room where we can all exchange information. The forums work well too. Ultumix SE has all new sound effects that make your computer sound like something from Star Trek. Ultumix Gamer Edition:
Requires: 512 MB of System RAM minimum, 10 GBs of HD space, and a 1.5 Ghz CPU or greater,
an Nvidia video card with 128 MB of memory.
Recommended: 1-2 GB of System RAM,
50 GBs of Hard Drive Space, and a 2.2 Ghz CPU or greater.
an Nvidia video card with 256 MB of memory.
What’s Included? Everything that is in Ultumix Standard Edition is included however there are two missing packages that you will need to install from the Add / Remove Programs icon on the desktop using owner as the password. The packages are: build-essential and g++. This is a simple process that needs to be done before installing any 3D video drivers as instructed in the Read Me First file located on the Desktop.

There are also added programs in GE. It is recommended that you also install the Ultimate Edition or UE upgrade package.
I think the extra download time is worth it. Ultumix Ultimate Edition: Well what Ultimate Edition is, is a tiny download of an .iso file that you will use with aptoncd to install the top rated extra apps for Debian. If you want to know what programs come in the package go to www.ultumix.com . Also you will find that this package will fix bugs automatically in Ultumix Gamer Edition. ( a few packages were removed before compiling Gamer Edition by mistake that caused a few bugs )
