My personal recomendation is whatever with xfce. I don't think it matters 
if it is debian or redhat (or whatever). XFCE seems to be the lowest 
resource user for a desktop that the average user will feel comfortable 
with. My wife and sons use xubuntu with no complaint and I have had no 
trouble running audio. Yes, I have added some tweaks but honestly, I don't 
think anyone even halfway serious about audio should expect to do at least 
some tweaking of a system.

- find out which USB port to use
- real time and memory locking permissions
- swappiness
- no boost
- performance mode
- no hyperthread
- etc.
