I feel it is a goal for Ubuntu Studio to keep customization of the desktop  
and the system at a minimum, and only customize that which will somehow  
enhance multimedia production.
At least manual testing should not require testing things that are  
identical on other platforms.
Especially since we are quite undermanned, which is something I hope could  
change in the future.

I made some editing to  
, but it's still very much under construction.
