The JackLab Audio Distribution Project (JAD Project), an OpenSUSE-based Linux distribution geared towards musicians, producers and and media creators, just released its first version to the public.
JackLab was created primarily for music production and so it comes with a real-time kernel optimised for low-latency recording, the latest and greatest open source music software such as Ardour and Rosegarden and over 300 plug-ins and effects.
The hardware requirement is pretty modest, too.

- RAM ->512MB
- Audio ->24bit/96khz
- Mass storage ->40GB
- Audio monitoring, preamplifier, microphone
- Controller / Master Keyboard
- Broadband internet access

So what are you waiting for?
