How to install Ubuntu Studio (7.04) Ardour Theme

Ubuntu Studio was finally out and you can see its screenshot from Howtoforge’s : Installing Ubuntu Studio 7.04 – Linux For The Creative. Ubuntu Studio features the new Ardour 2 dark theme which seems slick and stylish when combined with the applications available in the distribution.

However you don’t need to go through the hassle of obtaining Ubuntu Studio just to get its theme as Andi Darmawan has written an easy to follow guide to Install Ubuntu Studio Theme in your standard Feisty Fawn installation.

  1. IMHO, the diversity in Ubuntu is good, so people can choose any distro that just work and have the same community support.

  2. Wow, that’s nice! I’ve tried Ubuntu a couple yrs back and was quite impressed. But it was quite buggy at the time. Maybe I should check out the upgrade version soon.

  3. “Marketing stunt”… hmm, I hate that phrase.

    Personally, I beg to differ on the Ubuntu for embedded devices.

    My reason is simple, the embedded devices market is an altogether different market and definitely not a subset of the standard desktop distro market.

    If Ubuntu does a good job in the embedded devices market, we’ll have a good alternative to OSs like PalmOS and /or WindowsCE… which IMHO is a “good thing”™ :)

  4. Personally I don’t like the idea of ‘diversifying’ Ubuntu too as it added complexities in distribution management as well as confusion to user.

    For me, all of these ‘variation’ is nothing more than a plain vanilla Ubuntu with different selection of preinstalled package.

    I think this is just a marketing stunt from Canonical to please people from all walks of life to use Ubuntu, and I hope they wouldn’t go too far as to compromise distro quality from the lack of time to perform QC.

    p/s: IMHO, Canonical move to dive into Mobile and Embedded market is a bad idea

  5. I’m a very recent convert to Ubuntu (started yesterday in fact!), and must say I’m enjoying my Ubuntu experience so far.

    One thing I’m wondering though, why does the Ubuntu project likes to segment so many “builds” of the distro?

    There’s Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu and now Ubuntu Studio. Doesn’t this just add more confusion for the end user?
