    Ardour1 is actually Ardour 0.99.whatever  It was written using GTK
which is a graphical user interface (GUI) widget library.  Ardour2 is a
port (geek speak for conversion) of Ardour1 (0.99) to GTK2 which is the
most recent version of GTK.  GTK2 apparently includes many major
improvements to make the GUI much more usable than what was possible
under GTK.  At the moment Ardour2 is very much a beta release so, unless
you want to suffer through the beta testing, I would suggest you stay
with Ardour 1 (0.99.whatever).
