Ubuntu Ultimate Edition 2.1 is only available as ISO files, no RARs. I have no idea what you've downloaded, but I would suggest deleting it and starting from scratch.

The Ultimate Edition site has several download links available, including torrents. You should note that the site also mentions that Ultimate Edition repositories are out of date, so plain vanilla Ubuntu may be a better choice.

Ultimate Edition 2.1 downloads are here (http://ultimateedition.info/ultimate-edition-21/).

You need an .iso file and burn it as an image to cd.

You can find more info here:

PS: Ubuntu Ultimate isn't an official derivative of Ubuntu, you are better of with Ubuntu 9.04.

If you use winrar in windows and it is set to open all kinds of compressed files and images,your iso files show up as "rar" packages;like mine though.
So you might have the iso image already in fact.

We are now up to 2.5 with 2.6 ( based off Lucid Lynx ) just a month away :cheer:


Ultimate Edition is growing. With more and more users finding the light, the support infrastructure needs to grow and it has. :rofl:
There is now a choice of 3 different international forums:

http://forumubuntusoftware.info (Ultimate Edition Central)
http://www.ultimateeditionoz.com/ (Ultimate Edition Australia/Oz)
http://ultimateeditionisrael.freeforums.org/ (Ultimate Edition Israel)

All three are focused on just one goal to make your Ultimate Edition experience the best it can be. Join one or join all three, the choice is yours.

Ultimate Edition We've got you covered. :great:

Ultimate Edition is like asking for a romantic kiss with the girl next door and being taken to a month long party at the Playboy Mansion. You ask for a few more applications a few more tweaks to get your Ubuntu running a little more smoothly and you get drowned in so much choice, you probably flounder for breath.

This is not necessary good or bad, but I'm sure some people will find the extreme opposite of Ultimate Edition to what the default Ubuntu offers a little frightening. And others will cherish it like rain in the desert.

The choice of included programs is simply phenomenal. The programs are selected with care and a good balance is maintained between different categories and different uses, allowing just about anyone a hefty sample of everything. If you're lazy and want everything served on a platter, Ultimate Edition is the right formula for you.

The price you will have to pay is the reduced performance, much increased system resource usage and occasional application crashes and incompatibilities, as it seems virtually impossible to orchestra this huge install base without glitches.

Overall, Ultimate Edition in an impressive, welcome project. Future versions will offer an even better, more streamlined integration of applications into the distro and seek to reduce the system resource consumption as much as possible.
