Don't get me started about Ubuntu and jack support. It really is a second
class citizen - As it stands jack is not an officially supported package (It's
in Universe in Ubuntu speak)... Which means that if you want jack support for
any supported application you need to compile it yourself. I think a big part
of this is ignorance on the part of the packagers. I imagine that other
distros are similar.

Part of the problem is that Jack still takes considerable leg work to get up
and running properly. It's value may not be apparent to a new user and it is
different to how things are done on other platforms. Guaging from places like
the Ubuntu Forums and even things like Linux Audio Podcasts only a small
subset of users actually get a functional jackd setup working. I am not sure
how but it seems to me that the shortest path should be shortened.
