Ubuntu

Customizability has always been one of Linux's best defining features, and the newly released Ubuntu Linux 12.04 “Precise Pangolin” is no exception.

If you've been playing around with the new Ubuntu and wish some things were different about it, this new open source tool can help you make it what you want.
