This tutorial shows how you can set up an Ubuntu Studio 12.04 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops.

Please note that Ubuntu Studio 12.04 uses Xfce as the default desktop environment.
