UMix is a remixed version of Ubuntu with Unity 7 desktop. This distribution is for people who miss Unity, and who are not satisfied with other desktops that try to replicate the same experience. Even though Unity 7 was abandoned by Ubuntu as its default desktop, it is still included in Ubuntu repositories. This distribution attempts to provide the best out-of-the-box experience for Unity with modern themes and icons, better default applications, and additional software not available in Ubuntu repositories (like Shutter, RClone, BorgBackup, etc).
- Unity 7 desktop
- Based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa)
- Supports BIOS and UEFI installation (both offline and online)
- Dark theme for reducing eye-strain
- Repository with additional software not available in Ubuntu
- UMix is a paid distribution. A subscription needs to be purchased by making a one-time payment. When new versions of UMix are released the download links for ISO will be sent to all subscribers by email.
- The price of subscription is for the work involved in putting the distribution together and making sure that everything works correctly. If you don’t wish to pay for it, you can download the official Ubuntu ISO and customize it to your liking. There are many tutorials online for doing this. There are even some Unity-based distributions available. Purchasing a subscription saves you the time and effort of creating your own distribution.
- Refreshed ISOs will be available in April and October. These ISOs come with an updated HWE kernel and updated graphics stack.
- There is no need to reinstall when new ISOs are released. You can keep your system updated by installing updates. Since it’s based on Ubuntu 20.04 you will continue to receive updates from the official Ubuntu repositories till 2025.
- ISOs are tested to work on BIOS and UEFI systems in both offline and online mode (with or without internet connection). If you face an issue with installation you can let me know.
- EFI installation was tested in a virtual machine. You may face issues depending on the hardware you are running it on. If the official Ubuntu ISOs work for you then UMix will work as well, as they use the same installer.
- Installing in EFI mode with secure-boot enabled is expected to work, but is untested. If the Ubuntu ISOs work for you then UMix will work as well.
