i'm under studio 8.04.1 64 bits.

I'm using wacom tablet since 2003, model CTF420, very close the bamboo 
model, it's plug and play in ubuntu since dapper.
I think it's better in ardour/cinelerra/kdenlive/ and all the 
video/audio editing software using a "timeline" than a mouse.

i'm using it for image editing under the gimp, inkscape, scribus and 
blender, it's a large pleasure.

That's a good choice.
