I like it!
For me the high priorities are determined by what is
easily within reach. I believe these two are:
low latency scheduling in default kernels
Jack working out of the box on the major distros
At the moment, you have to do it yourself or download
from DeMudi, but the same principle that applies to
skolelinux applies to Demudi (and any other CDD):
get it into Debian, to increase the likelihood of
reuse, to flatten the bugs, and to decrease your
costs in time and effort.
