Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

This is cool.
Distraction free work space.
Needs a few tweeks here and there, but don't we all?

Ubuntu studio has been my main distro for 1 or two years, I think.

Pros :
- ubuntu and KX studio repos compatibility.
- obviously : out of the box low-latency kernel.
- Nice default choices. XFCE is still my favorite "functional and stable with no bull***" desktop. Hence the reasonable overall footprint.
- recent Ardour out of the box ! \o/
- A lot of usefull software included. Id did discover some of them with U.S.
- Good stability. No major problem encountered, daily usage.

Cons :
- Installer could let the end user choose which software package get to be installed. (although I would have probably ended up installing them all, anyway.

Conclusion :
If you are in for a full creation studio (sound + graphic apps) almost out-of-the-box, on top of a popular distro, with an balanced desktop (capabilites/footprint), then Ubuntu studio is a decent choice. Especially if you are looking for an easy way to install Ardour.
If you do not want the extra-software, you might want to build your custom studio on top of Xubuntu, with a few extra repos. (Studio, and KX-studio)

ubuntu Studio is an extremely stable operating system in my Lenovo M91p. I went with it because it has most of the resources that I wanted to use. I had very little additional programs to load.
I am one of those that has been trying to get away from MicroSloth but some of the ubuntu based programs just don't stack up, are difficult to use or just don't offer the same flexibility or ability to create as I need to. This is not a fault of u-Studio, this is the fault of the software writers which means this problem will appear in all of the distros that these programs are issued with. u-Studio seems very well thought out and runs beautifully. I have not had any crashes or problems with an install and I have installed u-Studio in quite a few computers in my studio area.
My experience is rather wide banded as i work on music, video, and graphics so I have been in all the catagories and used much of what is offered.
The recent lack of a forum for u-Studio is a concern since I have become comfortable with the distro, support may become a problem. Thank goodness for the most part, u-Studio is ready to go and has been developed so well, I have had practically ZERO problems using the distro.
