gOS Ultimate E Final Edition

gOS Ultimate E was the first Ubuntu remaster I ever worked on.

When the original gOS Rocket E came out, I was disappointed in how limited the system was. I wanted a system which allowed me to easily add new users and have a better file manager.

So what did I do?

I installed gnome-system-tools (which adds “Users and Groups” so you can add new users with ease), the Thunar file manager (my favorite file manager), as well as the ability to play MP3s, AVIs, and so on.

Since gOS Ultimate E was based on the Ubuntu 7.10 code base, this OS has been rendered obsolete as of April 2009.

gOS Ultimate E Final is pretty much gOS Ultimate E with software repositories changed to old-releases.ubuntu.com and all final software/security updates installed.

As with XXOS 2.4 Final, gOS Ultimate E Final is being uploaded for archiving purposes only. It is not meant to be installed on modern computers, but it can be installed inside Vmware or VirtualBox for a trip down memory lane.

XXOS 2.4 Final

This is an updated version of the first version of XXOS/XXCE I ever worked on.

XXCE 2.0 was first released in late 2008 and was based on Xubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron.

Since updates for Xubuntu 8.04 ended in April 2011, XXCE has been obsolete for over 6 years.

This is an updated version of XXOS, with all repositores pointing to old-releases.ubuntu.com.

All final software and security updates have been installed.

Since this is an obsolete OS, it is being posted here for archiving purposes only. It is not meant to be installed on modern computers. You may, however, try it out in something such as VirtualBox or VMware.

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS Final Edition now available.

I found an old version of Remastersys which was compatible with Ubuntu from versions 6.06 to 7.10, so I have decided to release a disc image of Ubuntu 6.06 LTS which has had all final updates installed.

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS was released in June 2006 and was supported until June 2009 on desktops and June 2011 on servers.

In order to download the updates, I have to change the reporitories to point to old-releases.ubuntu.com.

This is just plain old Ubuntu 6.06 without any proprietary codecs installed, although they can be installed in Synaptic Package manager. (Just look for gstreamer-plugins-good, gstreamer-plugins-bad, and gstreamer-plugins-ugly.)

UXOS Redmond and UXOS Cupertino now available!

For legal purposes, I have decided to rename Fuji OS into  UXOS Cupertino, and I have also renamed Lindows/LindOS into UXOS Redmond.

UXOS Redmond was designed to maintain a look and feel which should be familiar to users of Windows.

UXOS Cupertino was designed to maintain a look and feel which should be familiar to users of macOS.

UXOS Redmond is considered a general-purpose OS with all the necessary software the average computer user would want with several web browsers, email, social media (Twitter and Instagram), chatting (Skype and Pidgin), watching videos (VLC and Totem), gaming (including several retro console emulators), and listening to music (including Spotify and Rhythmbox and a YouTube music player called Headset).

UXOS Cupertino is a more advanced system designed for both general purpose users and serious users. UXOS Cupertino includes the same features as UXOS Redmond, however UXOS Cupertino also includes several creativity applications (including Blender and Inkscape) and Oracle VM VirtualBox.

Both UXOS Redmond and UXOS Cupertino include the Linux 4.11 kernel.

Both are available for free.
