    ubuntu and debian are very good for musicians and studio work... i dont give a SH** for java, dont need it
    Well, I have to admit... I myself like trolling sometimes. Trolling makes us answer the what ifs in life, and makes us better for it.

    • you might not give a shit about java - and you are a very small minority. If debian is so great for musicians - why are there debian forks for musicians?

      And please don't try to tell me that the pulseaudio infection in ubuntu is a good thing.

        It's a good thing.

          Java can be installed manually - not a big deal. I'm a musician and I used debian for recording. Why? Because Debian isn't difficult to work with. You can install something..without breaking the rest of your system. pulseaudio blows. That's the thing I hated more than anything else. ALSA when configured correctly to force non-takeovers is fantastic. Way less configuration too..

          jackd of course is my favorite, but that goes without saying .

              This is going to be short as I have another flight to catch to San Diego for the next week [if anyone wants to meet-up to discuss Linux, Phoronix, or the Phoronix Test Suite in the area, contact me]. Anyhow, Mark Shuttleworth just sent over an email saying that they will be deploying the Wayland Display Server with their Unity Desktop -- that's replacing the GNOME Shell by default -- in a future Ubuntu release!..

              The question begs, though - how *far* into the future could Wayland be in position to replace X.org under Unity?

              X.org supports more hardware than Wayland does by far - and I'm referring *just* to display hardware a year old or less. X+Mesa 7.10 supports - and with DRI at minimum - all but the most recent AMD GPUs (HD6xxx). Desktop, portable/Mobility, all can use one of two drivers today - r300g or r600c (with r600g being worked on). However, Canonical has decided to use X+r600g - despite being quite aware that r600c is still eating Gallium's lunch on the newer hardware. In fact, r600c has, in typical desktop usage, tied, if not actually begun beating, FGLRX performance metrics - something I never expected to see. And Gallium is *ahead* of Wayland.
