i run the LTS (10.04) on my production machine, and plan to stay there til
12.04. i have test installs of both maverick 10.10 and natty 11.04, and JACK
and other studio apps i test seem to run as expected. the only difference i
experience is a steady improvement of the -generic kernel for audio
production. here is a relavant forum thread -
