While there is no shortage of derivatives of Ubuntu, the release of Ultimate Edition 5.0.1 is worthy of mention. Most importantly, the operating system (OS) is a Long Term Support (LTS) release as it was built from the Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerius tree and will continue to be supported until 2019.

What is especially impressive is that the developer Glenn "TheeMahn" Cady built Ultimate Edition 5.0.1 using a mixture of his own programming skill and his very own tool Tmosb (TheeMahn's Operating System builder), which also has received an overhaul in honor of the latest release [1].

In fact, TheeMahn, who has been coding for over 30 years, has been developing Ultimate Edition Linux since 2006. In December 2006, he created a special edition of Ubuntu known as Ubuntu Christmas Edition . Its successor was named Ubuntu Ultimate , but after a polite email from Canonical regarding trademark issues, this was changed simply to Ultimate Edition .
