Ubuntu Christian Edition


Last Update: 2024-02-02 02:44 UTC


Ubuntu Christian Edition is a free, open source operating system geared towards Christians. It is based on the popular Ubuntu. Along with the standard Ubuntu applications, Ubuntu Christian Edition includes the best available Christian software. The latest release contains GnomeSword, a top of the line Bible study program for Linux based on the Sword Project. There are several modules installed with GnomeSword including Bibles, Commentaries, and Dictionaries. Ubuntu Christian Edition also includes fully integrated web content parental controls powered by Dansguardian. A graphical tool to adjust the parental control settings has also been developed specifically for Ubuntu Christian Edition. The goal of Ubuntu Christian Edition is not to bring Christianity to Linux but to bring Linux to Christians.

Very polished variant of Ubuntu. Love the Xiphos app. Host minder is good, DNS blocks a few too many normal/ok apps, but that's not due to the distro itself.Love the welcome screen as well, very nice touch and very well polished/visually appealing. Also like how it mentions these apps during the installation process and the UbuntuCE software is good as well, would love to see a few more apps in there if possible (I can't really think of anything myself however, may something to do with Christian ebooks somehow?).

Simple and clean. UbuntuCE is nice because it doesn't deviate from Ubuntu all that much, while still providing an excellent set of tools for Christians. The DNS Minder and Host Minder apps are also very useful for setting up web content controls easily.

I think the Welcome app is a nice way to introduce new users to Ubuntu as well. It provides quick access to some basic setup that lets the user jump right into customizing their setup.

I am excited to see what this distro has in store for the future.
