Ultimate Edition 5.4 released based on Ubuntu 17.04; Budgie is also included

Mr TheeMahn, developer of Ultimate Edition has announced release of Ultimate Edition 5.4, latest stable build of Ubuntu 17.04 based GNU/Linux distribution which offers a variety of applications and well customized look & feel. Considering the popular demand from users, this release also includes Budgie Desktop - an emerging desktop environment based on GNOME stacks. Budgie is not set as default desktop, but users can select it while logging into the system.

Ultimate Edition 5.4 is build using packages from recently released Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zapus, and the Tmosb (TheehMan's Operating System Builder), a custom tool developed by Tmosb, which can create more than 3000 varieties of operating system from Ubuntu packages. Being a regular release based distribution, Ultimate Edition 5.4 won't be a long term supported release.

Ultimate Edition 5.4 is expected to be more like a testing release, and in near future, another 5.5 version will be released based on Ubuntu 17.04 itself.
What is Ultimate Edition 5.4?  Ultimate Edition 5.4 was built from the Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zapus tree using a combination of Tmosb (TheeMahn’s Operating System Builder) & work by hand.  Tmosb is also included in this release (1.9.8), allowing you to do the same. It has the capabilities to build over 3000 Operating Systems.  This release ISNOT a Long Term Supported (LTS) release.

Currently I have only built the tip of the iceburg, I have began and finished building Ultimate Edition 5.4 & can build 5.5 based on Zesty (17.04).  Our beta besters asked for inclusion of Bungie & I have made it so.  I try and listen to my people.  This release has “Budgie” desktop, however not set as default.
