From 64 Studio website:
64 Studio is a GNU/Linux distribution tailor-made for digital content creation, including audio, video, graphics and publishing tools. A remix of Debian, it comes in both AMD64/Intel64 and 32-bit flavours, to run on nearly all PC hardware.
64 Studio 2.0 is designed to retain compatibility with Debian Etch, to create a long-lived and stable creative desktop. We combine the stability and quality of Etch with a specialised real-time preemption kernel and the latest creative tools demanded by multimedia artists. Our tweaks to Debian include simplified installation and default settings which help get production underway quickly. It's our target that users should be able to get from a blank hard disc to a fully hardware-optimised and usable creative desktop in just half an hour.
Rather than a fork of Debian, our package improvements are returned directly to Debian Sid, and our releases are built from Debian sources. We have also uploaded new multimedia packages to Debian, which are now available to all users of Debian and Debian-derived distributions.
The second stable release of 64 Studio is named after Electrical Audio, Steve Albini's studio in Chicago, USA
