I prefer Arch for several reasons over Ubuntu Studio, but wouldn't
recommend a newbie to install Arch. However, I'm still a member of the
Linux community and interested to help, especially musicians using
Linux, so Ubuntu Studio mailing lists are a good way to do it and btw.

May 16, 2014 was the "End of life date", but that doesn't mean thatI
should stop to care about Ubuntu Studio and other distros. 1. I
want to chose a distro regarding my needs, so I need information. 2. I
want to help and get help from a huge community. Some Linux knowledge
is not related to a distro, it's universally usable and it's valid to
help and/or ask on any Linux mailing list. JFTR the Mint request I
posted is not an exception, Debian and Ubuntu mailing lists are spammed
with tons of similar requests regarding Mint. It's not wise to use
Mint, when you are clueless (I won't call the OP an "idiot").
