Ultramarine 40 Flagship(Budgie)

One of the best beginner-friendly distros I've encountered, it even preinstalled all my drivers.
No nonsense or bloat is included, and you can do almost anything without ever touching a terminal.
The installer worked right out of the gate, and with RPMFusion and Terra included, you can install basically anything without any extra repos.
It is one of the best Fedora based distros and would recommend to anyone who wants to start their Linux journey.
This is miles better than Ubuntu.

KDE Ultramarine 39

Great distro, works out of the box on a AMD CPU laptop and with a NVIDA PC only required some minor changes to boot flags which changing those and diagnosing the issues was made much easier with the help of the staff & community in the discord (Got a reply in less than 2 minutes!) who guided me through how to fix the issue and it now works flawlessly! It uses slightly more RAM than vanilla KDE Feodra but overall runs very smoothly with no interuption. My new distro of choice for daily driving and would reccomend to anyone new to Linux or looking for a quicker setup on a Fedora based distro!

Ultramarine flagship (budgie)

Ultramarine is cool, cause you basically have fedora with RPMFusion configured and all the codecs installed for you, everything just works out of box, which is cool.

The only problem is localisation i18n.
App names in the menu are in my language, and gedit plugins :) names

but GNOME apps (gedit, gnome-terminal etc), cinnamon apps (nemo), xfce apps (parole) and MATE apps (eom, atril) are all in ENGLISH which is inconsistent.

installing langpack didn't help, it i18ned only libreoffice apps
# dnf install langpacks-xx

the only app which has my language out of box is firefox.


also there is a HUUUUGE BUG IN the INSTALLER:
my layout was

/dev/sda1 /boot/efi
/dev/sda2 /boot
/dev/sda3 /

Installer installed the systemm, but the system didn't boot after pressing enter in the GRUB screen
was loading constantly for minutes without getting to display manager
I couldn't even press or to see boot log and why it didn't start.

but when layout was
/dev/sda1 /boot/efi
/dev/sda2 /

everything was OK, system booted and I managed to log in into Budgie


i still rated it 10 of 10 cause it saves alot of time compared with vanilla fedora.
