It is not a social network and I'm not an official Ubuntu Studio
contributor :p.

I'm not a member of the church of Linux audio, but I have other reasons
to wish that more people use Linux.

There are sane reasons to use either Ubuntu and/or Arch Linux as I do. A
Windows refugee most likely would be unable to cope with Arch, so I
would recommend Ubuntu Studio.

The reasons might help to find contributors (and to win more users):

- Ubuntu is the most known major distro
- Ubuntu has got a past and a future [1]
- Ubuntu follows the user-friendly approach with all it's pros and
  cons. For Linux beginners just the pros of the user-friendly approach
  counts, so it makes sense to contribute to Ubuntu, to spread Linux.

Yes, the presence and future of Ubuntu is disputed for reasons that
don't count that much for the averaged computer user, such as e.g. a
Windows refugee. The presence and future that counts for the averaged
computer users is better than that of other distros, with a small user
and maintainer base and even that of other user friendly major
distros, since they have got pitfalls Ubuntu doesn't have.
