I don't consider Ubuntu a good choice. Easy to use, but they're
definitely heading an unfriendly direction.

Yah, some seem to be. Which distro was that? Have never seen one that
had any background graphic that original.

I have a Live CD version of Aptosid. When you boot it, the first thing
you notice is that the trash can has a huge pile of stuff in it. Didn't
anyone think of simply emptying the trash before they made their live
cd?????

In my opinion, as a former longtime KDE user, KDE4 *is not usable as a
music workstation desktop*. Too many background daemons, too much
eye-candy wasting processor time and memory (note: the eye candy can all
be turned off), etc.

Start with an audio distro. Musix works as a music distro. ArtistX
worked for me, too. Aptosid works for me, cuz I can always boot from the
live CD of whatever version I had installed, and reinstall it. And
Aptosid doesn't automatically upgrade items like the kernel; you have to
do that manually.

Or start with a non-KDE/non-GNOME3 desktop like LXDE or XFCE and add the
music stuff to it. While you're doing it - document everything you did
and keep that offsite. Similar backups for /etc, all your customized
.desktop files, etc. After it's all configured and works the way you
want it to, boot from a live Linux CD and make an image of your system
partition. Back that up and save it offsite.
