Description: USU is Linux distribution developed in Bulgaria.
It is based on the latest version of Ubuntu, and uses GNOME desktop environment.
It's primary goal is to be useful in the educational sphere - for students and teachers, but it has many features which make it useful at home for multimedia, Internet etc.
USU has three different flavors:
- USU Mini is the core edition of USU, which includes the most important components. This edition is ideally balanced between offered capabilities and ease of use. It is suitable for home or business use.
- USU Desktop (or just USU) is the most completed edition. It contains substantially increased number of various applications. This edition has a strong focus on the possibility of being used in education. It includes a few dozens of high quality educational applications. USU Desktop can be easily integrated in any school, because of its completely free license.
- USU Netbook is specially created for the little portable computers, know as netbooks. It is based on optimized USU Mini along with additional software. This edition gives a full desktop feeling and works good even on the slowest netbooks.

Some of the features of USU:
- hardware notifications feedback (show notification when you plug-in removable drive, webcam, pda etc.)
- easy switching between different desktop profiles (MacOS look, Windows Look etc.)
- can easily be installed on removable USB drive with it's own app
- can be installed alongside Windows, via custom Wubi build which comes with USU
- bleeding edge software repositories providing the newest versions of the most apps
- custom GUI theme, icons based on Elementary Project
- uses modified Nautilus filemanager version (Nautilus Elementary), which offers more smooth look and feel
- preinstalled multimedia codecs, adobe flash etc.

The project is widely open for everybody.
