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:
