 * What we do
 * Our mission
 * Contact us
 * Our teams

Ubuntu Studio is an official flavor of Ubuntu, which means the following:
 * Ubuntu Studio shares [[https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu|repositories]] with Ubuntu, and other Ubuntu [[DerivativeTeam/Derivatives|flavors]], so the main difference between Ubuntu and Ubuntu Studio is really what packages and settings you get when doing a standard desktop installation.
 * Most of the packages are directly imported from [[http://debian.org|Debian]] repos, from their testing and unstable releases and experiemental repository. (More about Debian/Ubuntu on the wiki: [[http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Debian]])
This is optional, but more or less required for most of the tasks we do. If you are in any way
