64 Studio is a GNU/Linux distribution tailor-made for digital content
creation, including audio, video, graphics and publishing tools. A remix
of Debian 4.0 'Etch', it comes in both AMD64/Intel64 and 32-bit
flavours, to run on nearly all PC hardware. We aim to combine the
stability and quality of Etch with a specialised real-time preemption
kernel and the latest creative tools demanded by multimedia artists. Our
tweaks to Debian include simplified installation and default settings
which help get production started quickly.

Version 2.1 is the first update to the second stable release of 64
Studio. It is named after a song by Jorge Ben, recorded by Os Mutantes
and covered by The Bees. New versions of applications such as Ardour and
Rosegarden are the main reason to upgrade, plus general bugfixes and
updates from Etch. It's not meant to be a bleeding edge release; it only
contains necessary changes. Some distros aim to give you the latest of
everything, but we prefer our stable branch to concentrate on long-term
usability. In that respect, it's similar to Debian stable or Ubuntu LTS.
It's a recommended upgrade for all 64 Studio users, without fear of
system breakage.
