Unity Dark or Unity Dark 2 is a freely distributed, open-source distribution of Linux derived from the world’s most popular free operating system, Ubuntu, and built around the modern and intuitive Unity graphical desktop environment.

Available for download as a dual-arch Live DVD

You can download Unity Dark from its official website or through Softpedia’s secure servers, as a single, dual-arch Live DVD ISO image that will support both 32-bit (i386) and 64-bit (amd64) computers.

Standard bootloader with standard boot options

Nothing spectacular on the boot prompt, as the distribution features a very standard bootloader that is usually seen on a wide range of Ubuntu-based operating systems.

From there, the user can quickly start the operating system with default boot options or in safe graphics mode (xforcevesa), start the installer directly, boot an existing OS from the first drive or perform a memory diagnostic test.

Amazingly designed Unity interface with a cool dark theme

As mentioned, the main emphasis of Unity Dark is on the modern and productive Unity desktop environment, which uses a cool dark theme, for an amazing, stunning user interface.

In addition, it includes stunning desktop effects powered by Compiz Fusion, icon and window themes, wallpapers, Conky system monitoring widget, extra plugins, live wallpapers, as well as a tool to open Android apps.

Unity Dark includes tons of open source apps

Among the pre-installed applications, we can mentioned the Skype VoIP client, GIMP image editor, Google Chrome and Opera web browser, Ubuntu Tweak, MyUnity and GNOME Tweak Tool system configuration utilities, qBittorrent torrent downloader, Shutter screenshot utility, and Wallch wallpaper changer.

Bottom line

Summing up, Unity Dark is a very cool, easy to use, easy to install, stable (based on an LTS release of Ubuntu) and reliable operating system suitable for modern computers. If you like Ubuntu, we guarantee that you’ll love this OS.
