[ardour-users] CCRMA vs. AGNULA

I am in the planning stages of trying a Linux based DAW and wondering which is better (I am looking for stability) CCRMA or AGNULA? I have also noticed that some of you seem to be using Gentoo. From my Googling I gather that this is another Linux kernel that one would modify oneself rather than using one of the aforementioned. I am also wondering which file system to use. What are my choices and what are the advantages and disadvantages of each?

Maybe I am conceptually challenged here. My understanding at this point is that Red Hat, Fedora, Debian and Gentoo are all different distributions of the Linux kernel. CCARMA and AGNULA are modifications to the Linux kernel (Red Hat/Fedora and Red Hat/Debian respectively) which are customized for low-latency audio and video. Is this accurate? Am I missing something? Are there more options? Again, I am looking for stability. What is the best combination to use?

Thanks for your advice,
