Hey Guys the Ubuntu NIgeria Loco team just got the Ubuntu Ultimate Version of Feisty Fawn

Ubuntu Ultimate Edition 1.4?

This release was built based off Ubuntu Ultimate 1.4 CD, with software integrated on to the DVD.

This release is a major milestone in the “Ultimate” series of distrubutions or distros for short; starting from this version forward upgrading from 1.4 to 1.5 etc. will be a click of the mouse away and without downloading 2GB every time. Full releases will still be availible for download. This version you will find to be much faster & more responsive; due to the many enhancements to the kernel and being based on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn.

I have added a script I wrote comes up on boot that allows Flash, video drivers etc. to be installed & plays music as it downloads them.

As always any software that requires a license agreement is not included, Java, Flash and Acrobat reader, Google Earth. Please freat not for the first time included in the release is my custom repo hosted on a seperate server which contains all the software and much more. Unlike Ubuntu Ultimate 1.3, to make life easier for users this distro will install drivers, Flash, and Acrobat reader for you apon booting from the live DVD. After installed there is an upgrade icon on the desktop that will install Google Earth etc.
