Thanks Brian. That is very helpful. I am reevaluating again. I actually didn't 
change much after I originally posted. This is the time if I am going to do it 
this year.

 Hi all,I use Rosegarden to teach composition to middle school students.

For a long time, I used Studio64 but it wasn't being updated and I was

running into driver issues on new hardware installations. In August, I

installed XUbuntu and added all of the music programs I use but have been

really unhappy with Ubuntu. There have been stability issues and frequent

loss of communication to software synthesizers. Before I do my next round of

compositions, I want to ditch Ubuntu.Does anyone have a recommendation for

an audio distro? Remember, I am doing this with middle school student so

stability and consistency are paramount. Personally, I have been a suse

person for several years but there are a couple of quirks to doing digital

audio and MIDI on suse that I don't mind dealing with myself but don't want

to spring on my students.Thanks.Dave

I use two different computers for my elementary school classes.  Both my

laptop and amdx6 dual boot.  Both run AVL 6.0.1b.  Desktop also runs 12.04

LTS because I needed smartboard drivers and at the time, 12.04LTS was the

way to go.  Since some time, I find AVL 6 works as well.  AVL is debian.

Its rock solid and very stable.  The laptop also runs the most bleeding edge

ubuntu 13.10 daily.



My reason to have AVL 6 on both computers is because when students are in my

room, its just got to work.  And JACK runs much better on AVL.  Could be

debain and/or stable branch.  Also the people behind AVL are very cool and

support is great.  At least the best I have experienced in the computer world.



** Try AVL 6.

That is my recommendation.  Good luck!

 Have you tried Ubuntu Studio? It's tailored and tweaked for audio
 production (it uses lowlatency kernel by default, for example). What
 sorts of stability issues are you experiencing? I have been using
 Ubuntu Studio for several years

Try Musix 3. Developed by music educators, I understand.
