Something very important is missing in UbuntuStudio and that is the
posibility to work with MIDI- files.
To find what is missing, you need more knowledge about linux than most
windows users do.
The programs are there, but not the «instruments». Anyway, I cant' get any
kind of sound from for exemple «Rosegarden».
