Have you tried this 1.9x64 bit edition?
I have been using Ultimate for the last 2 years & have nothing but praise for the creator, TheeMahn.
Yes, it is Ubuntu, but with everything except kitchensink.deb thrown in - free, non-free, alpha, beta, theta or just plain fun. One of the more "unofficial" offerings around, Ubuntu Ultimate grew out of a couple of specialist gamer rebuilds (via Reconstructor) by programmer and Ubuntu Forums member TheeMahn2003. It takes a very direct approach to the whole free/non-free issue by including scripts that pop up offering to install binaries with "End User Licence Agreements", like Adobe, Flash and Java, before the installation is even finished. Naturally, Compiz/Beryl and every plug-in imaginable has been included too - as has Recontructor in case you feel like going one better.
* 100% Lintian / Debian base error free.
* Added debug routine to help find any errors (--debug).

We live in a McDonald's culture. We want everything instantly and without effort. And we bristle when others around us appear to be getting more, sooner. Waiting for rewards or results is out of favor. It is so uncool.
Many things are created suddenly: the two-day house makeovers on HOME & GARDEN TELEVISION, for example, but they aren't great. They are adequate, functional, or practical improvements. Greatness requires thought and time, effort and sacrifice. Especially sacrifice.
Stellar careers aren't built overnight. Take the orthopedic surgeon, whose education extends 15 years past high school. Take the country western star on Grand Ole' Opry. Take the NFL quarterback or wide receiver, the CEOs, CFOs, and Vice Presidents of brand-name companies. Think about Edison, Einstein, or Galileo, or anyone else you might admire. None of them got there overnight.
