Performance-wise this system is now a beauty. Alas, the hoops I jumped through to get it into this condition were many and formidable. The solutions to my problems were not too difficult to find or implement, but they would be extremely challenging for users unfamiliar with the inner workings of Linux. In my opinion the Ubuntu Studio installer needs to go further in its preparation of the system for pro-audio needs, perhaps offering the user a choice between a high-performance desktop media playback system, a low-latency pro-audio production environment, or some stable mixture of both. The Pulseaudio problem ought to be easily resolvable by the user, and more system probing might be able to spot and resolve problems such as needless HAL polling.

I really don't know why people are so hot after Ubuntu based distros. They are not the end all be all. OpenSuse is so much better out of the box.

  on the Page 2 half-way down part:

"...The GRUB boot loader gets installed. Select Yes when you are asked Install the GRUB boot loader to the master boot record?: ..."

 If your UbuntuStudio11.04 Installation is on a separate disk(/dev/sdc), from let's say, your  Windows disk (/dev/sda), and you want to install the GRUB boot loader only on the  UbuntuStudio11.04 disk (instead of the default /dev/sda) ?

 -Then answer "No"  here instead, and the next screen will allow you to install the GRUB boot loader manually to another disk/partition/...  (ie: /dev/sdc)
