I'm not sure my approach/perspective would suit average users since
my day job is linux system administration ... But, I run a standard 
sarge installation and compile my audio apps from source. This has 
worked well for me so far. But, I'm comfortable configuring and 
compiling my own kernels, alsa-drivers, jackd, sound libraries and 
applications. It probably helps that I mostly only use ecasound right 
now, so I don't have many gui library issues to contend with. And, well
... it's only one app. 

I've been thinking for a while of trying more applications. Ardour,
muse, swami and fluidsynth are on my list. When I get around to it I'll
probably just try to compile them from source, too. But, I have left a
couple partitions free on my root drive for trying out demudi and
possibly something else. I'm hesitant to jump into using demudi, though,
not knowing what happens to the project once the funded development 
period ends.
