[ubuntu-studio-devel] DEs and how they relate to media production use

I do most of my multimedia production with Unity desktop and it is fine...
I don't want to change anymore to another desktop, and I would be for just
letting people choose what they want.

After all, Ubuntu has Unity per default, why not use Unity for Ubuntu
Studio ? Less time on DE customisation, and more time on building good
tuning tools, be sure that application are working well, etc.
