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

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.
