Not at all. I think we have addressed this question before actually, but, 
we are trying to make most of the workfows work on any DE. The 
ubuntustudio ISO and distro will remain xfce.

I had problems using it for even playing around with, but that is probably 
my HW. The whole graphics HW area is a pain. All the manufactures don't 
want you to know what is inside their box... but they all boil down to an 
interface that takes the same commands to do the same things anyway. They 
should put the driver in firmware and offer a standard interface to the 
computer... IMO. I have three computers (with graphics, some headless 
things too), One too old one too new and one too slow :P
