Ultimate Gamers Edition is an open source and completely free Linux kernel-based operating system derived from the world’s most popular distribution of Linux, Ubuntu, and designed from the ground up for hardcore gamers.

It’s distributed as a 32-bit Live DVD

The Gamers flavor of the Ultimate Edition Linux operating system is distributed as a Live DVD ISO image that has approximately 4GB in size, it supports both 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x86_64) hardware platforms, but contains software packages optimized only for the 32-bit architecture. It can be written to either a DVD disc or a USB thumb drive of 4GB or higher capacity.

You can use it directly from the bootable medium

Being designed from the ground up as a Live DVD, the Ultimate Gamers Edition distribution will allow the user to use the entire system directly from the bootable medium, in live mode. By default, it will start automatically when you boot the ISO image from the BIOS of a PC, but various advanced boot options are available on the boot menu.

What's New in version 2.8
  • Ultimate Edition 2.8 Gamers is unlike any other gamers edition built in the past. Beyond the updates / upgrades many tools have been ripped out of Ultimate Edition 2.8 (the base of the release), prior to build to maximize room for additional games. In Ultimate Edition 2.8 Gamers you will not find Openoffice, we are here to play games right? This does not mean you will not have a media player, just the very basics & a vast quantity of high quality games. Hand picked by bnjamin_breeg & I. The newest PlayOnLinux (at time of build) is also included to allow installation of ® Windows based games and applications as seen above. What games have been pre-installed?
