Ubuntu Studio 7.04 was finally released yesterday to what seemed like quite a bit of excitement. Ubuntu Studio is a version that focuses on multimedia creation and manipulation with what appears to me as an emphasis on music. At the time of this writing the official website seems to be experiencing a bit of trouble, perhaps due to the high traffic. In any case, sometimes the early bird does gets his worm and this time I was up early.
thepcspy: Because this is based off an alternative Ubuntu release, the only option to use Ubuntu Studio is by installing it using the text-based installer. I can't deny I was a little sad not to see a live version, especially considering that they had already cracked into a DVD-sized distribution. To me it would have made sense to go the whole hog and let people play with it before they install.
