My current OS evolved from UbuntuStudio Jaunty but has diverged quite
a bit over the
years. It's still set up to look a lot like UbuntuStudio Hardy with
the even older 
"soft-green" desktop wallpaper from KDE 3 or 3.5 substituted.
Currently I'm working 
my ass off to get a pretty menu retrofitted into MATE, using
cairo-dock for now 
to provide it. MATE, essentially the GNOME 2 US used to use but being
updated to 
use modern tools is far better code than Cinnamon (compiled instead of
JS, etc), I'm
just trying to get it to look as good right now.

Ubuntu is probably going to end up with a MATE spin, in fact. The
whole reason US
switched to XFCE is about to go away-and MATE is being ported to GTK 3
and even
plans to support Wayland.

In short, it may be possible to configure a MATE install on Wayland in
a couple years
to look like US did in the old days with far better performance.

My main use for the big machines remains video editing, I got my start
in audio news
work, now doing video news work.

Currently I run Arch Linux with systemd, but all my outdated Ubuntu
Studio installs are using upstart. A short web search doesn't mention
that Ubuntu made this unholy transition too. Yes, I'm a SysVinit
believer ;). So, are you using Ubuntu Studio with systemd?

Btw. thanks for the information about dbus :).
