    Not to mention: Um... But, wait. The question was, HOW do I download UbuQQ?

    Maybe, the OP needs download instructions...

    Personally, I download the .iso image using the DTA (DownThemAll) extension in Firefox.

    Alternately, if I'm doing a lot of .iso testing, I update my local image daily using ZSync, from CLI.

    Then, I burn the .iso image to a bootable USB thumb drive using "Startup Disk Creator".

    Alternately, you can burn the image to a CD/DVD, but the results are often flaky, in my experience.

    HOW you get a USB thumb drive to boot is left as an exercise in the second-order coefficient. LoL!

    All depends on the motherboard vendor and BIOS you're running...

    I have found that I have very good luck Burning Disks with my Mid Year 2010 Mac Mini's Super Drive, Just FYI. I also have very good luck changing them back to a .iso file (Using Copy a DVD in Brasero) as well. Just FYI.

    You are most certainly blessed!

    In my experience:

    • CD/DVD burners are obnoxiously quirky.
    • All media (regardless of price/quality) have defects.
    • Often, discs written on burner-a cannot be read by burner-b.

    I've had MUCH better luck using USB thumb drives.

    Just saying...

    I have an old Phillips DVD RAM disk burner which has been super reliable ,but, as VinDsl pointed out , USB s are much more reliable and faster . No muss, no fuss.

    Actually I prefer booting the .iso file direct. I zsync it into the first folder of a partition I call Archive where I have lots of stuff, name doesn't matter, then do as follows.

    The first 5 lines should be there already, just add the rest. In my case the .iso file is on /dev/sda5
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/grub.d/40_custom
    #!/bin/sh
    exec tail -n +3 $0
    # This file provides an easy way to add custom menu entries. Simply type the
    # menu entries you want to add after this comment. Be careful not to change
    # the 'exec tail' line above.
    menuentry "Quantal sda5" {
    set isofile="/quantal-desktop-amd64.iso"
    loopback loop (hd0,5)$isofile
    linux (loop)/casper/vmlinuz boot=casper iso-scan/filename=$isofile noprompt noeject
    initrd (loop)/casper/initrd.lz
    }
    save
    exit
    sudo update-grub
    sudo grub-install /dev/sda       < may not be necessary 
    
    Reboot, select the entry above
    select "Try Ubuntu"
    open a terminal window Ctrl-Alt-t
    df           < to see where the /isodevice is, /dev/sda5 in this case
    sudo umount -r -l /dev/sda5
    Then check out the live ubuntu. Before doing an install, make sure there aren't any other disks mounted by doing a df and a sudo umount /dev/sda1 or whatever.

    This is booting the .iso off the hard drive direct, faster than USB and CD/DVD.

    Now this is also faster since it omits the startup disk creation. I recently ran into a complication installing onto a USB hard drive from a USB flash memory with a remote USB keyboard and USB mouse. Install just slowed down and never got anywhere. I presume there were so many USB devices install got confused.

    Anyway, booting the .iso direct, I can check out bugs on the daily live every day I have time, and install when it seems worthwhile. Do note an install changes the grub menu so after booting the 40_custom needs copied in and sudo update-grub.

    Have fun,

    Jerry

    p.s. over the years I've acquired a mediocre working knowledge of Ubuntu linux from testing, and this is one of the time savers I use.
