I want to say first GREAT JOB to all the Dev team! That being said IMHO I think the single biggest and most important challenge is to make Ultimate Edition contain all the necessary drivers that it can for a flawless install. I am somewhat a newbie to Ultimate Edition and Linux for that matter, but by no means a newbie to computers and networking. The reason that a fast and clean install is most important is that most users are inpatient when it comes to waiting for programs or OS's to install.They will choose the OS that is easiest to install every time. I will give you an example of this. I shared Ultimate Edition 3.8 with four friends this weekend. Each one of them tried to install their copy as soon as they got home. Not one of them was successful. I had verified that their dvds were written correctly and good copies. After spending several hours on the phone trying to help them with the best knowledge I had and the knowledge I COULD Google up or find on the Forums I felt their frustration and told them that I had another build of Linux called Linux Mint fo them to try. I explained that it didn't have nearly the apps and beauty of Ultimate Edition but that maybe it would install on their systems. Each of them rushed over to get their copies I had freshly made. Within 20 minutes of arriving back at their homes each had a working install of Linux. The reason I am elaborating this is not at all to promote Mint or to bash Ultimate Edition but to enforce my point that install ease is number one importance and should take priority over all else. After all what good is all that beauty and apps if you don't get to use them? Each one of my friends are not hooked on Linux, in fact two are discarding their Windows totally and using Linux exclusively. Both of these guys are also taking an older PC and going to try to install Ultimate Edition for their kids. I also happen to have two machines that I cannot get Ultimate Edition installed on yet Mint installs and runs fine, yet I am still trying to get Ultimate Edition working, and will continue until I either collapse from exhaustion or I just give up. I get very stubborn about these things. Each one of my friends asked me why
Mint was able to install so easily yet Ultimate Edition could not. Ii did not know what to tell them except that we would continue trying until we succeeded and it would be worth our efforts. After all isn't the main idea to give users a choice over Windows and if they get frustrated trying to install Linux they will never get that choice. I hope I didn't upset anyone with my input. And btw an app that I personally have come to love is Kate and I think it would be a welcome addition to the pre-installed apps.

Thank you again guys for all your hard work!
I will be donating again on the 3rd to support the cause

Sorry I found this distro & forum now rather than before the vote closed.

I found my own choice of apps to be better than others forced onto me. The exceptions are when the added apps are seriously modified from the bland originals.

KDE is more respectful of screen space. Gnome wastes space on their silly task bar. Gnome needs gkrellm to make up for the lack of KDE's real-time performance monitors.
