Enough anecdotes, I agree with you in general. RT-audio, DAW, etc
/should/ work OOTB: Explaining to a newcomer how to get a simple
pro-audio setup on GNU/Linux is embarrassing.
OTOH Linux is really powerful for more complex setups where you _do_
want to know how the studio works and have the freedom to change and
tweak things: whether it is a technician who flanges the tape using a
screwdriver, some dude patching countless XLR cables or if it's a geek
using a Terminal: same difference. no need to run out of the studio, but

yes, that's basically it. you might want to install a PREEMPT_RT kernel
and configure rtirq (if you need reliable low-latency) and look for a
workable solution for CPU and bus freq-scaling (most PPL just disable
it). But all in all it's a one-time setup.
Then there's quite a lot of details for the last 5% but those can't be
generalized and usually is not worth following up upon.
