Ultimate Edition (64-bit) started off as Ubuntu Christmas Edition, and was made as a Christmas present for the Ubuntu community. The creator, TheeMahn, then created Ubuntu Ultimate 1.1. Ultimate Edition has more software pre-installed and ready for use even in the Live CD/DVD environment than Ubuntu. Ubuntu Ultimate 1.2 was released shortly after 1.1 with even more new software. To answer the call of gamers, TheeMahn then built Ubuntu Ultimate Gamers Edition. On October 18, 2007, TheeMahn received an e-mail from Canonical asking not to use the Ubuntu name or logo due to violation of trademark policy. Ubuntu Ultimate then became Ultimate Edition.
