I tried a lot of distros and I always went back to windows because it was very triky to make it all work properly (jack, ardour, guitarix etc..). Now I think I found the right one!

As a music producer:

Pros:

- Light and fast
- My cpu runs incredibly cool, and it's 31 celsius outside
- Looks nice ans is highly customizable
- Everything works straight out of the box, and the connection to jack is automatic
- Divers for my focusrite 2i4 1st gen were ready, just had to plug the card in

Cons:

- A couple of small and easy-to-fix issues with the touchpad. That's it.

Teste várias distros.
Debian, ubuntu gnome, ubuntu unity.
Arch puro, manjaro, antergos, etc.
Mas nenhuma se comparou ao Ubuntu Studio.

Prós:
É muito leve e rápida.
O XFCE é muito personalizável.
Vem com muitos aplicativos, fazendo com que não seja preciso instalar mais. Tudo que um usuário tanto amador quanto doméstico está instalado.
Firefox, Openoffice, Cliente para torrent, etc. Só não vem com jogos.

Contras:
Sinceramente ainda não encontrei pontos negativos na distro.

Cons:
I honestly still have not found negative points in the distro.

Had Enough of DRM and Paid (or shipped with pc, (bug one, you know)) Operating Systems. Some random Crashes on an old machine (478 and 775 sockest) when working on audio, (I'm not a Pro or a Tweaker nor programmer I just record music and play) but nothing tedious, for now. What I really wish is to have a highly publicized known - to work- out - of - the -box - hardware so one can build a tailored machine on it, Anyway thanks for the work and I recommend to grow the guides and all related tutorials and known-to-work tips and tricks. Ubuntu Studio Deserve it. I see many value and worth in it. Viva Music viva Ubuntu Studio!!!
