Why not spend the energy where it is most needed instead - which in our
case is Debian/Ubuntu/Ubuntu Studio?
While it is good to have diversity and different ways of doing things,
but at some point I think it just becomes uneconomic in the end with
duplication of work and less quality as the end result.

Also, there are already a few distros (which perhaps all of them are
audio only), and maybe they would be interested in your help? Like
KXStudio or AVLinux?
