Hello List,
I am relatively new to Linux audio and am trying to decide on a
distribution to use. I've been playing around with Fedora and the Planet
CCRMA packages, but I am also interested in trying out Ubuntu Studio. I
already have Ubuntu 7.10 on this machine, and I was wondering if I really
need to go through the bother of creating a new partition and installing
Ubuntu Studio from scratch, so to speak (not that it's such a terribly
onerous task, but...). If I do a simple aptitude search for "ubuntustudio"
while booted in Ubuntu a slew of packages come up (ubuntustudio-audio,
ubuntustudio-audio-plugins, etc.). Is there any practical difference between
simply installing these packages on my existing Ubuntu installation on the
one hand, or going to the Ubuntu Studio website, downloading the image, and
installing from there on the other? It seems as if the result would be the
same in the end, but I'm not entirely sure. Thanks!

Cheers,
Daniel
