Another Ubuntu Flavor: Ubuntu Studio

Ubuntu Studio bills itself as the "multimedia creation flavor of Ubuntu," an official Ubuntu project "aimed at the GNU/Linux audio, video, and graphic enthusiast as well as professional." It is certainly flashy on the outside -- even if it is mostly the same Ubuntu Linux distro under the hood.

We provide a suite of the best open-source applications available for multimedia creation. Completely free to use, modify and redistribute. Your only limitation is your imagination."

For me, this Linux is nice for multimedia. Current release is UbuntuStudio 7.04. Congratulation to Ubuntu Team that make this distro (Ubuntu Flavor) alive!.

Some screen shots. Follow this link:
