From its name, you might think Ubuntu Satanic Edition (USE) is the opposite of Ubuntu Christian Edition. It's not. According to its website, USE "brings together the best free software and free metal music on one CD". The Undead CD is based on Ubuntu 10.04 and includes all the standard software, along with a mélange of typically dark, heavy-metal themes, as well as a full 50-minute album of the best Creative Commons-licensed metal music.
