However, starting with ubuntustudio 12.10, we are trying an easy install
option that opens an installer with extra applications for the menu it is
located in. Lmms is included in that.

Ubuntu Studio is already (as far as I know) the biggest ISO in Ubuntu at 2
Gig. and growing. We have tried to carefully select full work flows with
one application per spot in the work flow. We have tried to pick the best
app for each spot though we have limited ourselves to gnome apps and
haven't added things that require the KDE libs.

Still, there are lots of applications in the ubuntu repos that anyone can
install to add to what we think is a solid base.
