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.
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.
