Linux or OS X? + Hardware
I think Ardour is just fantastic, and I'm in the market for a new computer.
I love OS X, but Ardour is not totally happy in 10.6
Question: what is the outlook for Ardour and OS X?
I am willing to make the switch to Linux, but I'll really miss the easy tools like spotlight, AppleScript, Automator, etc.
Anyone have useful comments about some advantages to a Linux based system (as regards Ardour) that I might not be aware of?
Also, one can get much nicer hardware for the $$ with PC's over apple products. That brings me to the next question:
What is the best hardware for running Ardour? Will I get significant performance increases from SSD's? Multicore processors? GPU processing? RAM?
There's a lot to choose from out there, and I don't have sufficient understanding of Ardour's guts to know what's best, not enough, moot, ...
