Demudi, a Debian fine-tuned for multimedia, was mentioned on slashdot
today: "Music and video arts can benefit greatly from the advantages
of using free software software. In particular, because of the special
capabilities of free open-source software (and their limitless
adaptation mechanisms), complex cross-cultural applications like
computer-assisted composition and digital video editing would finally
find the proper software context. However, while the multimedia
software sector is already well developed in the free open-source
software community, a complete turnkey distribution with ease of
installation and of use is still lacking.":
