UCK offers an enormous range of options for creating a customized operating system from a standard Ubuntu ISO. The graphical interface guides you step by step through the process of localization. You can add, remove, or update software then generate a new ISO that reflects your changes. With just a few mouse clicks, you can set up your own Ubuntu distribution.
