I've been taking a closer look at the upcoming Ubuntu Studio release,
scheduled for release the last week of April. I've been downloading the
daily build about once a week and giving it a try...
For the first time, Ubuntu Studio is building a Live DVD, which makes
these sneak peeks painless, and yesterday, I experienced a first for ANY
Live Audio-oriented distro:
The March 27th daily build booted cleanly on my AMD64 laptop, and I was
able to launch qjackctl, select the firewire driver, start jack, Launch
Ardour, and record two tracks of audio for 25 minutes, all by accepting
all defaults, and without a single xrun!
Finally, FFADO/jack/Ardour have reached the status of 'it just works!'
on UbuntuStudio 12.04
"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little
temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."
"As for our common defense, we reject as false the choice between our
safety and our ideals."
