And with a crackling fire sound in the background as a sound loop, every mouse click is a whip crack, every login is some variation of “you have gone to hellll” with mucho heavy metal thunder, and the logout sound is the devil laughing with delight. Oh and you must add a 666 screensaver, and a pitchfork cursor. Even an Atheist cand find interest in this one.
I like the fact that it says ‘Satanic Edition’ all over the place. If you’re going to use ‘Satanic Edition’ anything, you should wear it like a badge of pride. Maybe if people thought I worshipped the devil they’d be scared to bug me while I’m working. Mua Ha Ha!
I hate to be a party-pooper here, but just to set the record straight, as an ACTUAL Satanist, I would like to point out that all the fire and “devil” horns have nothing to do with real Satanism, more devil-worshiping (which isn’t generally practiced my Satanists.
Most likely, everything you have heard or read in the media about Satanism is based on ignorance and Hollywood stories.
That’s right, Satanism has NOTHING to so with the “devil”!!!
well devil worshipping is so long word that people tend to use satanism instead. It is a guite unlucky coinsidense that it was all ready used by someone else. As long as satanism is not trademarked anybody is free to use is as they will. So, I suggest that you trademark satanism. Else, yes we know that satanism doesn’t have anything to do with devil, but it sounds great as a distro name. Sorry
This is the biggest joke in the entire history of Linux and Open-Source. And this was obviously put on by someone who has absolutely “NO” knowledge whatsoever about REAL Satanism, Heathenism, Paganism, or any Earth-Based religion at all for that matter.
First of all, unlike Christians and Muslims, we of the Earth community DO NOT proselytize and push our faith on other people. Second, it would be total sacrelidge to misrepresent our gods and our faith in such a stupid and wreckless manner. If you want REAL Satanism (or, just curious as to what Satanism is REALLY all about) then GoTo: http://www.satanism101.com or http://www.templeofset.com , but don’t look at this new Ubuntu as a question of faith because their author(s) are a prime example of a question of reality!
It’s kinda cool, but along with the request for taking the name out, could you do one where the Ubuntu logo didn’t have the little horned guys around the circle? I like the theme and would love it on my Beryl screen, but without the Satanic overtone. Love the pics though. Great work!
I dont understand why some of you goody two shoes are even looking at a theme of this nature! NO do not take out the little horned creatures or the satanic nature of this beautiful theme! If you want a goody goody theme do a search for sugar and spice and everything nice for god sakes!! haha! Enough said now you all can go to hell! (evil laughs fill the air…..)
Hilarious. Makes me want to go read up on Dante. Speaking of which…seems some people dislike “satanic edition” — it is required to keep the balance: good and evil…one cannot exist without the other. Anyway, my suggestion to replace the phrase “satanic edition” would be “Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch’intrate” which translates to “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.”
I like the suggestion of a Buddhist Ubuntu. The first release could be called Kreamy Karma or Dapper Dhammapada, Buddhabuntu: Yellow Robe Edition. somehting along those lines. As aBuddhist myself, I’d enjoy that. By the way, great work on the Satanic Ubuntu version
HI there, I dont like ubuntu so much, im a debian user, but the christian edition makes me angry and stomach of this ugly muddy blackassholes (in my native language is the pejorative name for biblesuckers:-)). So this distro RULEZ!
i use PCLinuxOS but i love this idea, it totally kicks ass.
As for the issue of removing the satanic edition, you should leave it because that is what it is called, not to mention it is just bad ass, i would totally use it if it were not for the kick ass PCLinuxOS. I like the theme and so i might make my own version for pclinuxos cuz i aint switchin out my OS.
In Ubuntu Christian Edition they had software like Dansguardian for internet web filtering. Which could be very useful for family with kids and other software like bible searching (to who it may interest). Is there any kind of useful software promoted with this Ubuntu release or is it just about themes, splash screen … ?
God Bless all of you trolls, and here is wishing you a very Merry Christmas. Repent now and be saved, fear only the Lord himself and cherish His everlasting love. Be merciful and fruitful in your ways and follow the path the good Lord has made for you.
Christians want us to kill kill kill kill kill kill and love thy enemy. Thank Reason for the BRICKTESTAMENT.
Legos have shown me the path and it is one filled with round pegs for my lego brethren.
I cant wait for the satanic kubuntu. KDE has been too fischerprice for too long.
I think it’s a good idea to make an extra log screen without sayin SE i reall like this theme the name caught me to check this out and I’ve been thinking about migrating from win xp to ubuntu but i’m not so sure i think i still have to know ubuntu’s advantages and disadvantages so until now i only run the 6.6 live CD i orderd from shipit. Don’t reove the guys with horns that shows that this is “satanic” if i change into linux ubuntu i will install this cause all ppl at home are catholics n hate saying thinks about satan n stuff like that.
Haven’t been on Ubuntu for about 2 months, but with all of your GREAT artwork, I think it’s time to return.
Being on Dial-up, it will probably take about 2 days to get all the updates. (still using Ubuntu 6.06).
Keep up the good work and try to get something I can run all of my WAV and WMF files on legally. (dial-up is too slow to replace them with Ogg files.
As a born-again Christian, I too don’t care for the idea of a “Satanic edition” and, like many others on here, I too would prefer that all references to Satan be stripped from it. It’s an interesting idea of joke, albeit, IMHO, a sick one.
However, Novice, I have to say that I like your idea of images of Bill Gates and/or the Windows logo burning in effigy — that would be a hoot! Even better yet, I think there should be an image of Steve Ballmer burning in effigy — besides, he’s the one running the show now at Microsoft, and his arrogance seems to know no bounds with the way he’s implied that he’s gonna sue users of Linux distros (other than Suse, of course) for IP infringement. Of course, he knows deep down that that’s a lie…
Actually, given Novell/Suse’s partnership with Microsoft back in November, wouldn’t something like this be more appropriate on Suse instead of Ubuntu? Just a thought…
I beg you not to install this Satanic theme! Upon entering my password I was sucked through a fiery black tunnel to the very depths of Hell. A hideous creature with the stench of sulphur and death roared at me, “For using this satanic operating system, I claim your soul as mine for now and eternity”.
I Cried ” I promise I’ll never use Ubuntu again”, … He stared at me a little puzzled then said, “My bad… thought you was using Vista dude, and I was shot back to my workstation in the click of a mouse. Damn. That was scary!
Yes, yes. A welcome addition and a welcome response to the crazy christians (as opposed to the non-crazy christians) who infuse their religious dogman willy nilly into everything they encounter. This is an excellent way to throw light on their zealotry.
I was getting tired of Ubuntu but I just changed my mind! More of this: The Sith Edition, Sauron, etc. etc.
To the “Real” Satanists, I would suggest that, like “Dave” or “Mary”, the name “Satan” is not unique to one being. Please accept our apologies, and do not be offended if we satirise a character who is the personification of evil in some religions, just because his name happens to be that of a deity in yours. It is not the same Satan.
How about if the Release Notes (maybe even the Installer) were to mention this?
Forgot to say, wouldn’t the Zen Edition make the default Gnome desktop look unbearably cluttered? I’d love a Taoist one for those Mornings After, though. Icons floating serenely in the river mist … ah!
Absolutely love it! All religeous types take themselves too seriously. Whether it’s Xtians, or the worshipers of Set, or Jews or … the list goes on.
At least some of us have a sens of humour.
I’m indifferent as to whether the “Satanic edition” stays there or not. It doesn’t bug me.
Would be nice if we could have both (for those t5hat don’t want it and are too lazy to take it out).
I’m a Gamer, and up till now I can’t get my favorite game to Run on Ubuntu so my main PC at home is still a winblowze box (purest form of ebil).
Now, however, I have the will to do something with my secondary PC (used to run a teamspeak server (and ONLY a teamspeak server) don’t really have another use for it).
So i’ll be formatting it and installing ubuntu at home. Thanks for comeing out with this one mate! Judging by other posts here, you’ve rekindled a spark in people to use Ubuntu (again and more often). We need more people like you spreading the love.
Oh and for any future satansits/pagans/christians that are going to post something here and get all high and mighty…
Hi guys, can anybody suggest proper offering to desecrate the hardware after installing this? i am waivering between burning a Vista cd in a crypt, or drowning a ubuntu CE cd in a pool of goat’s blood? (as a side note, does goats blood wash off keyboards?) all help appreciated!
In all seriousness, though, great artwork, and i totally understand the motivation behind it, although personally, ubuntu CE just made me laugh…(an evil laugh that is!)
If you’re going to have this kickass theme for Ubuntu, then -please- look up Anton LaVay on Wikipedia and finally know what Satan / Satanism truly is! Here:
“The most prominent and widely known Satanist in recent years is, and was Anton Szandor LaVey, who founded the Church of Satan in 1966. LaVey wrote The Satanic Bible (1969) and other works which remain highly influential (though controversial) among avowed Satanists. LaVey rejects the Black Mass, cruelty to animals, or a literal belief in (or worship of) Satan, instead considering Satan as the human instinct within ourselves, which is what LaVeyan Satanism celebrates; the human instinct. Instead he supports a view of human beings as animals and rejects many social structures that he believes inhibit human instincts.”
Just found the site. Friggin’ hilarious and great work! I too think that two versions, one with Satanic Edition branding and one without would get more customers. Love the idea of a pitchfork cursor and evil laughter wav files. The wife is a Buddhist who also loves the whole Devil concept. I might convince her to run this one or a Buddhist version if one were to become available.
Anton LaVey nor the Church of Satan have a monopoly on the mythological figure of the devil. Satan is a word rooted in ancient Semitic languages such as Hebrew and Arabic which commonly means Adversary. Satan was not a proper name of a “demon”-like figure until the book of Job, where he is referred to as a member of the order of angels called the sons of God. but even here, the Hebrew seems to indicate “a satan(adversary)” as opposed to “Satan”. Regardless, in the terms of being aligned with a two millennium-old tradition since at least the first or second centuries BCE, Unbuntu Satanic Edition is in COMPLETE agreement with the popular western mythology of Satan – as an adversary. Ironically, it is very much a Christian-inspired mythological theme belonging strongly to the medieval interpretations of hell, Satan, and the demonic.
The atheist/humanist perspective of the Church of Satan who view Satan as a force of nature / force of human character is a mere infant in mythological terms compared to the Devil of Dante’s Inferno. Sure, LaVey’s view is defensible, but it is NOT the only view, nor it is the most common view.
Just because this carnival piano player (LaVey) founded a church that believes only in man’s potential it calls Satan, it is by no means a standard that Ubuntu S.E. has to follow as some kind of cardinal rule. HELL NO. So don’t get all “this has nothing to do with Satan” on the author’s ass – Satan is whoever you want him to be – for most of us, he’s a bad dude with horns – for LeVay and “Church-of-Satan-goers”, he’s man’s carnal potential that seeks to dismantle Freudian interpretations of super ego “God” as ultimate parent and install man’s in “god’s” place – if you want to argue historical precedent, the Satan of Christian mythology and of Paradise Lost, pwns LeVay in spades. I think Satanists need to relax and let the devil play where he will – if you don’t like this interpretation, go make your own theme and use that one.
If only there were more professionally done customization like this was done, Ubuntu’s community would greatly increase in popularity and standard, but instead we are stuck with those who want to contribute but cannot possibly live up to such standards as that portrayed with this.
Awesome job, and can’t wait for further development of the collection.
Ever considered dropping the Satanic bit and going for “Occult edition” works for me and to be honest booting into Satanic edition is fraught with peril ie there’s a parent in most homes with a large rolled up newspaper waiting to cut allowances or otherwise crush tear and rend embryonic self expression Look at the Muslim edition they put in all sorts of things, this one could do the same you can even use the legend “Occult edition”…expand your mind and reality.
Most sad people look at the Satanic bit and get a hard on; make silly hand signals at concerts and in general start wearing crap cheap makeup crap clothes from in the know shops..with a lot of mass produced rags and, pretend to be the living dead. Oh and Satan was actually their uncle all to hide the fact they live very sad introverted shabby uninteresting lives and like to delude themselves a lot.
This distro has potential.
I forgot to mention I am the parent with a large rolled up newspaper waiting to cut allowances or otherwise crush tear and rend embryonic self expression, but hey thats one of the perks of the position.
I am a christian and read the reviews. I love ubuntu but I feel this has gone to far. Hell why not just do one for each relgion Islam would be a pig rosting a cow over a spit…Hindue you could continuly login with a message sorry you have not reached the appropriat enlientment level to access the desktop please refer to the help files or the command prompt.
It would be entristing to through the profiecies in the OS. Also the name should stay well discrptive…
What a waste of time. When are we going to see a “ubuntu retarded edition.” or “jonathans own version of ubuntu” or how bout “drunkbuntu” or maybe fuckbuntu/hellbuntu and fdsfdsfdsfdsfdsfsdf43543543 34trgfd dgfg fdg fdsg54tfdg
i would use this edition if it was more brutal. I would like to see some alters and some people worshiping the demon horned Lucifer. And maybe some roaring electronica doom music as the intro. For a screensaver you could take the desktop picture and warp it and let satan tear apart the desktop then eat it and burp.
I like your theme but the lack of KDE ‘themes’ to go with the background and everything else was disappointing. Also I am running an encrypted file system, and for some reason the bootup screen doesn’t show up and therefore it makes it harder for me to log in… I don’t know if there was anything you could do to help me, all it says is that there is no 640×480 splash screen or something similar.

A single third party tone of voice about BBC within the Tv show. He carries a definitely hard immigration coverage. He graduated about the Harvard College. Currently he has the one Stereo Show. He didn’t such as the actual United states of america president.
Love the distro,whats the difference from the quick install and a install from the dvd? i dont currently have a dvd burner so i cant burn the iso at the moment.will there be a new release in the near future or is this going to be the final?hope to see more. you did an amazing job on this artwork. and screw all the negative comments, they are just spouting some crap that their grandparents beat into their parents heads who in turn beat it into their heads.Great job bro.
