editor's review




Unity Dark 64 is an open-source Linux kernel-based operating system known for its wide-ranging software packages, beautifully designed graphical desktop environment and out-of-the-box multimedia support options. It is derived from the world’s most popular distribution of Linux, Ubuntu.

Available only for modern, 64-bit computers

As its name suggests, Unity Dark 64 is an operating system engineered for modern, 64-bit computers. It is available for download from Softpedia as Live DVD ISO image of approximately 3GB in size, deployable on either a DVD disc or a USB thumb drive.

Uses the same standard boot options as Unity Dark 2

Once again, there’s nothing spectacular on the boot prompt, as the distribution uses the same boot options and design as many other Ubuntu-based operating systems, allowing the user to start the live system, install the distro, run a memory test or boot from the local drive.

Stunning graphical desktop interface built around Unity

You won’t believe that Unity Dark 64 uses the same Unity desktop environment that is used on the official Ubuntu releases. It has been highly customized with dark icon and window themes, desktop widgets, stunning wallpapers, and many other small tweaks.

Comes pre-installed with powerful applications

As expected, the OS comes pre-installed with powerful applications, such as the Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox web browsers, SMPlayer video and YouTube player, Wallch wallpaper changer, Netflix Desktop client, Conkyllia Conky manager, Steam for Linux client and Deja Dup backup utility.

In addition, the LibreOffice office suite, Ubuntu Tweak, Ubuntu Software Center, ScreenCloud screenshot tool, Geary email client and Curlew multimedia converter are also included.

Bottom line

It is a known fact that comes as a continuation of the Unity Dark 2 Linux operating system, with more software packages, a brand-new design for the Unity graphical interface, but only with support for modern computers.
