After Ubuntu and related distros released a new edition last week, Ubuntu Studio developers have released a new version of their OS which is based on Ubuntu Quantal. Ubuntu Studio is mainly focused on content creation and ships with a low latency kernel by default. You can download the DVD image and burn it to a USB stick or disk.
Using Ubuntu Studio, you can create or edit videos and music, record music and do a hell lot of creative tasks. For tutorials and more, visit their official site.
