Ultima can be described very simply: it is Slackware pre-configured into a very useable desktop. So, DO expect Slackware's stability, performance and simplicity, as well as low hardware requirements. DO NOT expect cutting edge technologies and latest versions of packages - Slackware, and therefore Ultima, stick to what works for them. In particular, they still use 2.4.x kernels, though 2.6.x kernel is supposed to be available somewhere (but if it appeared anywhere as an option during the installation, I missed it).
