I never cared for Ubuntu

But this I like! This was the first distro / remaster I've tested in a vm and ran jack with no xruns at 46ms latency (all default settings). That was enough to keep my interest to play more. I've since put it on a test machine with a Delta 1010lt which it found and configured with no problem. I suspect this could make a good daw os without much fussing.
If I had a faster machine (AMD +2000) I could be styling running Reaper under wineasio (installed just fine). I get no xruns, but the Reaper process climbs over 60% CPU utilization and starts to stutter even with the simdock closed. I would imagine Ardour users would have much better luck on my hardware.
