Ubuntu GNOME (formerly known as Ubuntu GNOME Remix) was an official Ubuntu flavor focused on providing a mostly pure GNOME desktop experience built from the Ubuntu repositories. Ubuntu GNOME includes the standard GNOME Shell desktop environment, with additional applications like Firefox, LibreOffice, and the Ubuntu Software Center.
