Jack2 (in debian and ubuntu) being an exception as it ships both jackd and 
jackdbus in the same package. One of the two needs to be chmod -x (at 
least for using jackdbus, getting rid of jackdbus to use jackd requires 
other steps) or there will be "odd" things happen as most people seem to 
end up with both running sooner or later with unpredictable results.

Not worth that. Good music has been made on just about any distro and DE 
(or lack there of).
