With the exception of hardware that requires firmware that cannot be re-distrivuted, UbuntuStudio should support the same hardware as Ubuntu proper. If it doesn't, we would want to know about, so I guess a live disk would help in that regard.

I don't think Canonical have the disk and CPU time to make live DVDs for us, but I'll see what I can do about making maybe not daily, but weekly DVDs available.
