It isn't that Ubuntu can't be used, it is that it tends to be more of
a headache than anything especially for new users.  They tend to break
the distribution packages of Ardour in subtle but annoying ways, and
they are specific to Ubuntu.  That combined with the effort of getting
Pulse and Jack to play well together(Less of a problem recently I
admit) and their tendenecy to update packages a bit on the slow
side(2.8.6 is how many years old now?) means that it generally is not
the best choice for people not looking to spend significant amounts of
time in sysadmin working around what they have done.

All that being said, this is all likely to be mitigated a large amount
by the binary distribution of Ardour through the website now, not
completely, but hopefully a large amount and hopefully to the point
that the un-suggestion becomes moot.  Youll pardon me if I don't hold
my breath:)
