You forgot to mention the lack of a real time kernel :)

Also, I have two laptops that 8.10 seemed to break wireless.  Both
laptops have Intel adaptors (a 4965 in my netbook and 3945 in the
Latitude).  Building my own 2.6.28 resolved the issue.

8.10 is much better with KDE4.2, but you need to add an *unsupported*
PPA apt source.  Also 4.2 is even more bleeding edge.  3.5.x is MIA, and
it would have been nice to have alongside the 4.x branch given the Beta
nature of 4.x

For Studio work 8.04 is really the only choice.  Even on the Desktop, I
see no compelling reason to move to 8.10
