Ultimate Edition Lite 4.0
Available only as a 64-bit Live DVD
Even though previous releases of this product were distributed for both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures, the current version can be downloaded only as a 64-bit Live DVD ISO image that will run only on amd64 (x86_64) computers and supports either 32-bit or 64-bit applications.
The boot menu is quite comprehensive, allowing the user to try the operating system without installing anything, permanently install the distro on a local drive, check the integrity of the bootable medium (only if using a DVD media), test the RAM for errors, boot from the first disk, access the expert installation (graphical or text-mode), as well as to enter the rescue mode.
Lightweight operating system powered by MATE
Being a lightweight distribution of Linux, Ultimate Edition Lite features the MATE desktop environment, a clone of the GNOME Classic session, which uses a two-panel layout.
Default applications include the Chromium web browser, gFTP file transfer client, Pidgin multi-protocol instant messenger, Wireshark network scanner, Calibre ebook library management software, Amarok audio player, DeVeDe DVD-Video authoring tool, GIMP image editor, Phatch photo batch processor, EasyTAG audio tagger, ISO Master CD image editor and burner, K3b and Brasero CD/DVD burning software, VLC Media Player and Cheese webcam viewer.
Ultimate Edition Lite is a great distribution of Linux that is lightning fast on high-end machines and works great on low-end system or computers with old and semi-old hardware components. However, do not hesitate to try the original Ultimate Edition operating system!
