I use Debian/stable plus the packages available via DeMuDi/agnula. I also 
found Debian ok to install, although you do have to know your hardware better 
as it doesn't auto-detect much. You can install the bulk of it plus low-lat 
kernel using tasksel during the second part of the installation process. Last 
I looked it wasn't actually labelled as such, but the option is there. I had 
to do a little 'figuration on my system to get the music apps to work, but 
mine's an old box cobbled together out of bits. It is so easy to keep it up 
to date (that's 6 months out of date for /stable :-)
