A much less buggy version of Ardour and several other packages for one, as
well as several updated Audio drivers that work w/ my hardware .

I'm not really into compiling all of my apps from the ground up. To be
productive w/ Ubuntu Studio, I just need Intrepid to have a working -rt
kernel package as opposed to attempting to back-port / compile a bunch of
stuff from Intrepid into Hardy.

I've been keeping my eye on the lists and various launchpad links for a
while, but I'm not seeing a whole lot of progress.

RT is critical to my applications. It is the only way to actually get glitch
free audio recording. I could use Hardy, but it has older versions of the
applications that I use, and I would have to re-compile new ones.

In any case, I'll just wait until it gets sorted out and keep using Sonar
Producer 8 until then.
