Less than 1ms when I want it with PA off. and jack set to 16/2 on Ubuntu 
Studio with no xruns. Very usable.

I meantioned using 20ms latency was usable with external monitoring, not 
that it was the best that could be done with UbuntuStudio. Yes you can 
multitrack very well with high latency with external monitoring, however 
there is really no need to do that as UbuntuStudio will do well at lower 
latencies even with 12 or more tracks with jack at 32/2 (which is where it 
happens to be just now with 17 tracks). I have found that 128/2 is on the 
edge of useful with for virtual instruments or live effects, but I can run 
16/2 with guitarix and no drop outs for that.

You come across as a troll (without any real and useful info).
