More distros=more choice!! :-D
Am I weird for thinking that your desktop environment matters much more than your distro?
Not weird, being happy with the gui ease-of-use is crucial to being
able to enjoy making music with computers, as with the individual softwares.

There are a few divergent streams of use that share the linux kernel,
but in general, the C libs, graphic toolkits, and video drivers will
be available in most distros, with alternatives for special cases,
and for the age of the hardware.

Bodhi Linux is a light ubuntu based distro, has been around for years,
and has the Moksha version of Enlghtenment as default, a good choice when repetitive-use pains start appearing And with wineHQ and KX Studio repositories added, a small drive or SSD can go a long way. With linux Bitwig, Reaper, and Mixbus daws, a wide range of plugins can be used, and daw output can be connected to or with, various standalone apps, so the whole OS becomes a daw mothership, so to speak. Good times! :hyper:

Found an interesting linux project, that among other things, aims to add features from Puppy Linux, like 'frugal installs', and use of .sfs files, to a custom Arch Linux system, and some other distros.
Requires registration, see the faq below.

There is a topic at one of the main Puppy Linux forums:

Developer One Small Clue have released their nice Poise drum machine plugin for free. Lot's of useful features sans a lot of
clutter.

https://www.onesmallclue.com/

The drumkits/samples file is about 87 meg, so plenty of
categorized kits, to start with. Works fine in linux Reaper, wrapped by Linvst. I tested it's kits being played by the late great H G Fortune's Drumburst, which has midi-out, together with UGO's now free Dualism midi arpeggiator, which is the arp engine from his M-Theory plugin, a followup to his String-Theory plugin, both still worth having if not allergic to 32bit synthedit works. I think UGO is still part of the Camel-Audio team that integrated Alchemy into MacWorld. One of the goodguys from KVR, his many plugins including Rez II and Rez III are still hosted and free
