+1 on the XFCE desktop.  I have used XFCE (xubuntu) and it's a fine 
environment.  Very close to Gnome2 and I expect with a little work it 
will more than do the business for Ubuntu Studio.

I have tried Unity and Gnome3. Can't say I saw much to like in either 
of them at this time.  Which may change in the future but I'm not in 
any hurry to have either of them on machines I use.
