    the forbidden question: which distro...
    Yes, I dare to pose the forbidden question. Thing is, I used to use SuSE 4.x back in 1996, and since have been trying and using a whole lot of different distros, from Damn Small Linux to Arch to Ubuntu, at work or for private use. I am getting a new Dell laptop this week. I will use it for: - software development on the web (php, RoR, evtl. python and java) - desktop apps (Internet surfing, emails, music listening, youtube videos, documents, etc.) - music production (possibility arose that I could teach courses on free media production) This are of course very conflictive usages, which actually make it impossible to choose the "right" distro. I am tending towards ubuntu because simply put most hardware just runs. But I'm inclined towards Ubuntu Studio which would give me a multimedia studio on which I can stack my development stuff. Or would you see any reason for not installing ubuntu studio, when I will, at least in the beginning, mostly run apache and develop in PHP and/or Ruby On Rails? Any other suggestion? Thanks
