ultimate <http://distrowatch.com/ultimate> Glenn Cady has announced the
release of Ultimate <http://distrowatch.com/ultimate> Edition 2.0, a
desktop distribution and live DVD based on the recently released Ubuntu
8.10: "Ultimate Edition 2.0 has been released. Ultimate Edition 2.0 is
built based on Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex, it is loaded to the hilt with
themes, wallpapers, icon sets, GDM login screens, and usplashes. If you
have a 64-bit processor I highly recommend the 64-bit edition. This
release has all the goodies you have come to love with previous editions
pre-added and a few new ones. It has a newer kernel and all updated as
of release date pre-installed for your convenience. Compiz Fusion works
right off the live DVD without drivers." Read the full release
further details. Download (MD5)

And what they are selling is Ubuntu Intrepid under a new name. If
they do not change much it should indeed work fine.
Do you get your upgrades from Ubuntu?
