JackLab Audio Distribution is the top Linux distro according to LinuxTracker.org (ranked by the top 10 most active torrents)

I have just published an article on Distropedia about JackLab Audio Distrobution(JAD) (http://cafelinux.org/distropedia/?q=node/173)

I'm downloading JAD now! and anxious to try the TOP distro!

have you tried/used JackLab Audio Distribution?

I'm interested to see what the ULTIMATE Linux distro is like...

NOTE: JackLab Audio Distribution includes as it's default Desktop Shell: e17!...they have already won 80% of the battle to become the top distribution by using e17 (and KDE and all the awesome KDE applications.) ;)

Interesting... UbuntuStudio on OpenSuSE using e17 as the DE. Could prove very interesting indeed for the audio enthusiast and architect.

Worked instantly for me; JAD is a German distribution so it may not be as well known and popular in the English speaking world?

On the JAD website they have more German mirrors then USA mirrors, for example.

RAV, why do you keep changing your nameservers?

I'll be trying the LiveDVD version of JAD this weekend, if I like the LiveDVD I will then install it!

aside from Musix & maybe dyne:bolic there has never been a distro released specifically for musicians in the Linux Environment(or at least I can not remember any more at this moment in time). I have never heard of one that uses the e17 DS by default.

I am not sure what your talking about? I actively do not change anything, perhaps you should ask my host?

Rav the live version is an early beta version and its hit or miss whether it loads or not. I have downloaded but not tried the full release yet, the beta was very good apart from updating as it tried to update all Suse updates over the jad ones causing big problems, and the usual Suse problems still were present, it uses he same low latency kernel as Elive so that's a plus, and you can load both E17 and KDE. desktops if you want so you can setup hardware using KDE. by logging in and out thats a plus. i could not get NTfs3g to work correctly which for me is a pain and again Elive exells in this department. may be that is sorted and themes are also thin on the ground in the distro. did you know you can use gnome themes in Elive, using Gnome Art to download them, i might post how to do it in Elive talk if people are inerested i use the greenheart Theme.

I am not going to stop using Elive Gem 1.0, I am just curious what other people are doing.

As far as I am concerned Elive Gem 1.0 is the best OS in existence for me ;)

Thanks for making a formative post about JAD.

I would love to see your Elive Gem screenshots, you can see many of mine here (http://cafelinux.org/OptickleArt/).

This might sound sad but i do not have a clue how to host a site or to upload screen shots, And as ive already said Elive is also my Distro and will be for a long time, i really abuse it and it never complains or crashes.
