UbuntuStudio being an 'art' focused distro makes me think you would want to
make it as graphically and visually appealing to use as possible, no?  Even
if Ubuntu looks minimalistic, would we not want Ubuntu Studio to still be
the cream of the crop for Linux artistic work, and be a step up visually
(even if plain Ubuntu indeed looks more minimalistic)?    (I understand this
is very subjective though.)
