Thanks for the suggestions.  I'll keep them in mind.

I think the more minimal Linux distributions would be a problem for me, 
where I do MIDI music, and I /do/ need to use Java.

Fluidsynth (Qsynth) /barely/ ran on that machine anyway.  But with a 
Soundblaster card, it worked fine.  The Soundblaster 'Live!' card in it 
is probably more valuable than the machine itself, and I can use the 
disk drives.

The Java Sound Synthesizer also barely ran on it, but interestingly, 
only on the Ubuntu-Studio system (which uses the low-latency kernel).  
It doesn't seem to work on Lubuntu, which may be a problem with 
non-standard installation of PulseAudio (which is required for the Java 
Sound Synthesizer).

Also, for some reason, on Lubuntu, the pulse-audio control (pavucontrol) 
reports two internal audio cards (rather than an internal audio card 
/and/ the Soundblaster 'Live!' card.  I had to use trial-and-error to 
determine which was which.  That's not something I would want to inflict 
on a user.
