Fedora-Based Ultramarine Linux Designed for Ease of Use

Ultramarine Linux 38 is based on Fedora 38 and is offered with either the Budgie, KDE Plasma, Gnome, or Pantheon desktop environments. This latest release adds something special to improve performance.

That boost comes in the form of the System76 CPU schedule that prioritizes processes. The one caveat to this is that only the Gnome version automatically detects an application in use. However, all four editions do include various tweaks to the system to ensure users get as smooth an experience as possible. This includes improved startup and shutdown times.

As well, Ultramarine includes the latest versions of the included software. You'll find Flatpak supported by default, and there are even non-free software titles that can be installed.
