I tried Bristol once a few years ago (it took forever to get working!), but the aliasing was atrocious... not attempted to try it since.

I run Ubuntu as my daily driver at home and work. But a short time ago I gave up on it for music and got a PC. Ableton Live is crap in Wine, and I wanted a dedicated music machine anyway. If Bitwig ever materializes, I may have another look though. I do miss Jack a lot.

Most of the freebies ended up being a waste of time, and most of the commercial ones were outside my price range. I'd spend all my time messing around with demos and trying out the freebies and not getting anything done.
I have always been the most productive on my linux setup with fewer options - which aren't really limiting at all. But it is nice to have the choice there
Now that ardour3 is here I'm looking forward to having a play with its midi features and hook it up to zynaddsubfx, hydrogen, and maybe one or two other items.
On the subject of distros, I used to be a fan of the old jacklab distro which was based on SuSE linux. After that project ended I distro hopped around ubuntu, mint, crunchbang, back to mint, then on to arch which is what I use now.
