Hi there, Fernando,

Ive installed Fedora Core 5 on my computer, but I experienced a lot (I 
mean a lot INDEED) of troubles concerning to graphics card installing 
(NVIDIA) and kernel updating. I spent 6 entire days trying to set 
everything to run fine, but no way I could accomplish this.

Then, I tried to use oher distro. First in line, Debian. Too 
complicated, I gave up right at start, since it took more than one hour 
to install the raw OS.

At last, I tried Ubuntu, that one based on Debian. Beautifull. Perfect. 
Everything ran fine, and the most succesfull concerning to 
easy-utilization resources. Now, past a week doing my updates just fine 
(including the SMP kernel, NVIDIA and Xgl/Compiz), I just have to get my 
hands on a low-latency kernel, so that I can use Ardour with my M-Audio 
Audiophile 2496 and try to leave Windows (ARGH!!!!!) for good!

So, I'd like to ask you: is there any chance you or your team can 
develop a Planet CCRMA version for Ubuntu, in the future? I know that 
there was, once, a guy that developed a low-latency kernel for 
Debian-based distros, but he left the project, and there's no support 
for it anymore.

Well, to compress this message a little, what I have to say is: you guys 
are the ones who can save one from using Microsoft products, while 
presenting an excelent solution for Digital Audio production on Linux. 
And I believe you can really do it!

Well, I hope to hear from you again!

Thanks a lot,

Diogo Baeder
