Ubuntu Ultimate Release - Multimedia Heaven

What is Ubuntu Ultimate Edition? Screenshots.

Due to the popularity of Ubuntu Christmas Edition (~15,000 downloads in 2 weeks) 1.2 has seen over 50,000 in 3 days. I have decided to make another distro I'm calling "Ubuntu Ultimate Edition" it has everything listed in the Christmas Edition plus much more. I have however removed Java, Flash and Acrobat reader due to licensing agreements. Please freat not included in the release is my custom repo which contains all the software and much more.
