Ubuntu Studio is a Linux-based operating system designed as a free, open, and powerful platform for creative people to create their art.
Ubuntu Studio is Free and Open Source Software (FOSS), which means it is free to download and use. You can get the source code, study it and modify it. You can redistribute Ubuntu Studio and can even redistribute your modified version. Read more about these freedoms at GNU.org’s Free Software page.
Ubuntu Studio is released every six months, but a long term release (LTS) version is released only every 2 years.
