No, I only said what's the philosophy of Ubuntu, I wasn't talking about
my philosophy:

"System requirements

The system requirements vary among Ubuntu products. For the main Ubuntu
desktop product, the official Ubuntu Documentation recommends a 1 GHz
Pentium 4 processor with 512 megabytes of RAM and 5 gigabytes of hard
drive space, or better.[46] For less powerful computers, there are other
Ubuntu distributions such as Lubuntu and Xubuntu."

You can't make all kinds of audio/MIDI productions with a bloated DE and
512 GiB only. You better use Xubuntu.

At the moment I'm running

$ cat /etc/issue
Arch Linux \r (\l)

since I have got needs that don't fit that good to the policy of Ubuntu.
