Hi Dave,

I am running an AMD64 machine and having difficulty with Ubuntu 9.10, so 
soon I could be
shopping for another distribution.

Knowing that you run multiple distributions, could you compare the 
advantages of each ?

* Is there one with a RT kernel ?
* Which ones will Rosegarden NOT complain that timing is not fast enough ?
* Which is easiest to configure ?
* Is Pulseaudio a good addition...or is it a problem ?
* Which ones are reasonably up to date ?
* Which ones require, or would be best with,  a kernel recompile ?
* Which have the best support (paid or otherwise) ?
* Which is best for 64 bit machines ? Which applications need to be upgraded 
for 64 bit architecture ?

These are but a few of the questions that come to mind.

Your thoughts ?
