Pros: just works :) and does it well.
Cons: slackware installer wut can I say.......it's realey not that bad.



OK just a FYI !!!

http://www.ultimalinux.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=541
and adding digicam and it's nesesarey libs I'v got a verey funktional and stable OS :D
at least for my purposes witch are enjoying musick and vidio (havent run acros a unsuported type yet) and if your into the torrent thing ;) it comes with bittorrent witch works fine ( I added Ktorrent I like more GUI ) burning cd's k3b dose the job well ( allthow some burners arnt suported by cdrecord ) but somthing like nerolinux usualy will !!! transfuring picks and vid from my digital camera. ( thats wut the digicam addition wus for and it works fine as well )
I run my own webserver apache that is witch wus allredy working all I had to do wus add content to the dir. it serves from /var/www/htdocs and wala I had a webpage Cool http://14u.kicks-ass.org/ (thars some screensots hear)..
I do some paper work & time sheats for work. openoffice.org comes standerd and CUPS prints it all fine.......and OF corse webbrousing you have firfox,Dillo,Flock,and of corse Konqueror KDE's file manager webbrowser medea viewer doit all heck it even makes html photo galerey's for ya :cool:
so all in all I'd half to say GOOD job agin Multima
;) IT'S A KEEPER
and to eney body looking to try a linux distro this ones a good one to try sence a lot of stuff you'd half to add on uther distros works out the box hear

Pros:
Cons:


If you're looking for a Slackware-based live-DVD that has about everything you could want, ready to go, this is it! Similar to Sabayon, but unfortunately, Sabayon is based on Gentoo. The only thing that would be a huge improvement for Ultima is if the base was switched to debian.
