Ubuntu Studio 13.04

A multimedia production Linux distribution specifically designed for creative people
Welcome to the Raring Ringtail edition of Ubuntu Studio, a freely distributed and open source operating system that uses a great collection of multimedia-specific applications, as well as the latest Ubuntu and Xfce software technologies to provide users with a hassle-free distribution of Linux suitable for multimedia production work.

Available for download as Live DVDs of 2.5GB in size

Ubuntu Studio 13.04 was officially announced by Canonical on April 25, 2013 along with various other Ubuntu flavors, and supported with software updates until January 27, 2014. It is available for download as Live DVD ISO images of 2.5GB in size each, suitable for deployment on 64-bit and 32-bit hardware platforms.

From the standard boot loader of the Live DVDs, the user will be able to start the live environment, perform a system memory diagnostic test, check the integrity of the disc (only if using a DVD media), boot an existing operating system from the first disk drive, as well as to install the distribution without testing it, which is something that we don't recommend.

Bigger ISO image means more multimedia-specific apps

While the Xfce-powered desktop environment uses a traditional layout comprised of a top panel and a bottom dock (hidden by default), it has been revamped a little with a different wallpaper and a new theme than the ones used in the last two releases of the product.

Bigger ISO image means more multimedia-specific applications preinstalled on Ubuntu Studio, among which we can mention GIMP, Darktable, Audacity, RecordMyDesktop, Kdenlive, Blender, OpenShot, MuseScore, Scribus, Krita, Synfig Studio, Agave, ImageMagick, and many others.

Bottom line

Summing up, Ubuntu Studio 13.04 was yet another perfect release of Canonical's operating system designed for creative people. Unfortunately, this version is no longer maintaned and has been archived for historical purposes only.
