Ubuntu Studio 8.10

| Will it stay? Will I completely make the move to Ubuntu Studio, at least on 
| this laptop? Too soon to tell. But I am very, very impressed with what I see. 
| I like it a lot. I'll know more after I've had the chance to use the audio 
| production software in a few days.

| do for them, or maybe people looking to solve particular problems and get up
| and running with particular software or hardware.

Ubuntu Studio 7.10

| Ubuntu Studio 7.10 is easy to install, looks nice, and works well. But is it 
| worth installing? If you're an audiophile and need a real-time kernel and 
| don't want to have to configure it yourself, then perhaps. Otherwise, I don't 
| see a compelling reason to install it instead of normal Ubuntu 7.10. All the 
| applications provided in Ubuntu Studio are now in the Ubuntu repositories 
| thanks to the Ubuntu Studio developers. Even the boot splash, theme, and 
| system sounds are a quick apt-get install away, although they must be applied 
| manually.       
| For those who want a real-time kernel or just love the look and feel of 
| Ubuntu Studio 7.10 and can't be bothered to customize vanilla Ubuntu 7.10 to 
| fit your needs, it's worth a download.  


A Look at Ubuntu Studio

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu has been the most popular Linux distribution for quite some 
| time now. This popularity has spawned quite a few variants. Apart
| from the inevitable third-party knock-offs, there are a few
| "official" Ubuntu-based distributions: Kubuntu, which has a KDE 
| GUI instead of the standard GNOME, Edubuntu, which is optimized
| for use in classrooms and Xubuntu, which uses the lighter-weight
| XFCE desktop to take advantage of older computers. Now, a new 
| variant has appeared called Ubuntu Studio.

| I am truly amazed and delighted with Ubuntu Studio. I'm surprised at my 
| reaction as well. I'm not a big Ubuntu supporter, although I'm not a 
| detractor either. I've just never been all that impressed with Ubuntu. 
| Ubuntu Studio is a different matter. It was attractive and pleasant with 
| some little extra touches that make it seemed very polished and 
| professional.

| Out of all of the official Ubuntu derivatives, the version that's received 
| the least amount of attention during the 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) development 
| cycle looks to have been Ubuntu Studio.  


Ubuntu Studio supports serious audio, adds little for video and graphics

,----[ Quote ]
| As multimedia distros go, Ubuntu Studio's decision to build on to an existing 
| distro instead of reinventing the wheel gives it a leg up on its competition. 
| I look forward to seeing what Ubuntu Studio will release once Ubuntu 7.10 is 
| out the door.

| The first screenshot is a clean view of the Ubuntu Studio desktop. It's
| hard to see (as this 1600×1200 desktop shot has been resized) but the
| custom theme they have created is simply awe inspiring...


Reviews - Ubuntu Studio

,----[ Quote ]
| While one could conceivably take a current Linux distribution and
| create a multimedia setup of one?s own, Ubuntu Studio takes some of
