I installed a Ubuntu Studio that is a PITA.
I installed Edubuntu, then the needed Ubuntu Studio packages and it is
working like a charm ... not by default, regarding to some well known X
issues and a missing RT-kernel.

Anyway, I still have some issues.

- Most of the times I manually need to run 'pon dsl-provoider' after
  startup
- The mouse-wheel almost never works
- S/PDIF doesn't work
- even turning off pulseaudio completely kept some issues
- The kernels default frequency scaling does automatically change from
  'performance' to 'ondemand' after a session was started. A no go,
  because for a lot of audio apps this will cause xruns, even without
  CPU load + without much use of the memory.

I'm not fine with obsolet audio apps for a Studio distro, e.g. the
oldish envy24 control instead of mudita.

That's the problem with Ubuntu Studio for me. It might be a very good
consumer OS for a Theatre PC, but it needs a lot of tweaking to become a
OS for productions. Of course, I'm talking about at least about
sophisticated home recording, where zero jitter and proper sync etc. is
needed.

Missing WLAN = missing additional electric smog definitively isn't an
issue for a studio distro, because such stuff IMO has no business in an
av studio.

2 Cents,
