I know what you're thinking, "Just what the world needs, yet another 'buntu spin," while you're rolling your eyes. You may have a point but I like to think that I'm a creative guy, and I put some thought into this. I wanted a more or less stripped down 'buntu with only the stuff I wanted, and nothing I didn't. I also like some of the stuff that makes Mint a really awesome OS. So, I built BHUMR-C.WHAT IS IT, ANYWAY?
Like the name says, it's an Ubuntu/Mint hybrid that uses the latest Cinnamon Desktop environment. The base system is Ubuntu 14.04.1 from the mini/net install .iso. The DE is Cinnamon 2.3 from the nightly build PPA. It stays fresh using the Mint Update tool and includes both Ubuntu and Linux Mint software repos. I also included the Mint artwork, and the Mint Stick USB utilities.WHAT PACKAGES DOES IT INCLUDE?
BHUMR-C comes with Google Chrome Web Browser, VLC Media Player, Mumble VOIP, and LibreOffice Office Suite. Under the hood you'll find the entire Samba networking stack, so your BHUMR-C computer will be ready to work on a Windows network. Anything else you might need is easily installed through the Synaptic Package Manager or the Ubuntu Software Center. Multimedia codecs are included as well. It also has Remastersys if you want to roll your own spin.WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?

You can download the ISO from my Google Drive share here
and md5 hash
. Make sure you check the hash before you burn the ISO. This is not a hybrid ISO, so it won't work if you use dd or the Mintstick GUI tool to burn it to a USB. You'll need to use Unetbootin or the Ubuntu Startup Disk creator if you want to use a USB. Also be aware that some USBs work better than others. If you get an error like I got here
, try another USB or disk. The live session user name is "bubba" and there is no password.SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
BHUMR-C is 64 Bit only. It was built on a machine with a 2.2 GHz dual core processor with 2 GB of system RAM, so there's your minimum requirements. I'd recommend at least 4 GB for smoother operation.FEEDBACK
Message me here to let me know what you think. Note: I am not a programmer, package maintainer, or a developer... I simply mix together packages that others have built into what I hope is an attractive, usable system. If you encounter any bugs, please report them to the appropriate package maintainer.UDATE---
I have updated the ISO so it's now hybrid, you can use dd or the Mint USB Image Writer to burn it to a USB and it will boot. Hybrid ISO MD5 HashUPDATE 2 (10 NOV)
