The biggest problem that I'm seeing in all of your emails is that you
think Ubuntu Studio is a separate distribution from Ubuntu. It is not.
You will find this is true of all official flavors of Ubuntu. It is
merely a different default installation and configuration, similar to
Fedora's "spins".

Yes, you can install Ubuntu and Ubuntu Studio alongside each other, but
the GRUB boot entry will always list them both as Ubuntu because that's
what they are. You will never find an "ubuntu studio" entry in the

I hope that clears up your confusion.
