I advice strongly against installing any other thing than an LTS version if you are going to be using Ubuntu Studio. Ubuntu Studio while is officially supported is not ''standard distro.'' The packages installed, given the number of them, require extra ressources in the maintenance and are prone to issues. Krita for instance was removed because of such issues. Also, if you predict installing other softwares, the software center is very (very, very) slow in comparaison to others.
Many don't like the idea of not having the liberty to chose individually what they want and don't want.
Also, I wouldn't ditch Windows this easily, Linux (in practical) isn't meant to replace Windows, and will never will. Some material support or softwares require a lot of ressources to just be maintained open source, or low budget. Also, when patents are necessary there is no alternatives.
Where possible substitute, that's where Linux shines... it is in the underground work, where it takes much less ressources... to then finalize it under Windows with minimal self imposed restrictions. The thing is to maximize productivity by using each where they are most efficient.
Also, there is considerable differences between Vista and on the other hand 7/10.
