64studio and Ubuntustudio aren't much different in itself, in fact,
they even share a lot of packages taken from Debian. For example the
pd-packages on both are the same. The desktop may be configured
differently, though, but that's a per-user-setting, which you can
change of course. So I wouldn't bother with reinstalling the system
completely, but instead configure the system so you like it. Maybe use
a diffferent window manager or build your own kernel? What exactly is
wrong with your machine?
