And software that doesn't work, such as mdetect and
make-googleearth-package or that XFDE will spam GNOME with windows
asking for mail notification or which file manager I wish to use and
after answering I will be asked again and again.
Even the GNOME theme sometimes needs a logout and login, regarding to
panel issues.

If I would know another distro that is that near to my needs as Ubuntu
Studio is, I would switch the distro.

Btw. Debian would be a distro to switch, if the stable wouldn't be that

I'll try the testing, wheezy. I keep my Ubuntu installs, but I'll see if
there are no or less issues using Debian.

OT: The sound of your M-Audio Delta is ok? A friend has got a M-Audio
Delta (AFAIK with 8 channels) and he said, that it does cause the same
bad, muddy sound quality as my TerraTec EWX 24/96 do. He switched from
the TerraTec to the Delta, one of my two cards is one of his old cards.
He experienced the same sound quality issue for Linux and Windows. I
didn't hear his Delta myself. He said, that when using the DAT recorders
IOs by S/PDIF, the sound is ok. I wonder if I get rid of my sound
issues, when using the RME HDSPe AIO? Unfortunately S/PDIF for my
TerraTec doesn't work. The friend, Thomas, was developer and soldering
lackey at Brauner microphones as I was too, Thomas and I still are
friends and we were friends of Brauner since school time. Anyway, we
don't compare our home recording equipment with the equipment we used
when we worked as audio engineers, we just compare the computer to Hifi
consumer DAT recorders, CD players, 4-Track analog cassette recorders
etc.. My TerraTecs and his Delta don't reach this digital
consumer/analog home recording quality. But that we did develop
professional studio equipment and we also were FLOSS coders for the C64
and such old computers, doesn't mean that we have knowledge about modern
digital recording. I'm not kidding. I wonder if Thomas and I miss just a
tininess that will cause issues. OTOH Brauner borrowed me a Mac with bad
software, but the Moto Firewire device's sound quality was good, no
issues and I didn't do anything different to now, when using it ... a
long time ago, when the highest sample rate was 96 KHz. Btw. IMO 48 KHz
should be enough for home recording, below there's audible loss, but if
the analog IOs and AD/DA converters are ok, 48 KHz even for professional
studios should be high enough for nearly every kind of production. If I
would have the money, I would switch back to good analog audio
equipment. Well, my Behringer mixer is analog, but bad anyway ;). Good
analog equipment is much to expensive these days, but still easy to
handle, maintain, repair (discrete circuits, CME ships etc. for old
synth are another topic), reliable and with the absolutely perfect work
