I've installed Ubuntu Studio 19.10 Beta on my primary system.

System is a Supermicro X7DAE motherboard, 20GB RAM, 3ware 9750 SATA 
controller with two Seagate 1.3 TB drives in RAID 0 for boot, a single 
Seagate 4 TB drive as backup/archive.  Video is a AMD/ATI 5000 PCI-E 
card with two 25" flat panel monitors.  Sound, which has not yet been 
tested with 19.10, is a M-Audio PCI card.  As far as I know all hardware 
as properly detected at installation and seems to be working normally 
(except the untested audio, of course).

The only difference between the 19.10 Beta install and my usual Xubuntu 
system is the replacement of the two Seagate 2 TB drives with the two 
Seagate 1.3 TB drives.

Performance seems much better on this hardware than Ubuntu Studio 18, 
which ran so slowly as to be unusable (I did find that Ubuntu 18 plus 
the backports PPA worked OK, by the way.  No idea why).

I will have some benchmarks later once I've done some migration of my 
primary system onto this new version.

Installation was uneventful, except for a weird desktop that briefly 
appeared which seemed to be a concatenation of several desktops 
appearing during the boot process running the live version, and once 
after a restart of 19.10 after updates.  This seems to be debris from 
the creation of the DVD and has no effect on performance, but might be 
scary to some users.  If this is something that I should track down I 
will try to catch it once on video.

Updates from Ubuntu proceeded without problems.

I haven't had any problems with the applications but "Software" failed 
to complete the install of UnixBench from the Ubuntu server(s).  This is 
not a real problem since the current version does not run on this system 
and needs to be recompiled, and I have the recompiled version already 
available.  I will try this again once I've migrated my directories to 
the test system.
