Gonna give it a shot- Waiting to try
Fairly new to Linux, using Zorin cause I like Windows or Mac feel. I've been a Pro-Tools person (friends studio) and I use an older version of Sonar in mine. I'm wanting to be different and in a way upgrade and do my studio "open source" and researching seems to show me that Ardour is the one and only recording software (at least in my searches on google) that looks professional... or at least like something I use or have used. (Don't know midi, digital and all that BS... we're a live recording metal band)
So I am waiting to download a trial version to give it a try. If it works, then I'm going Linux and Ardour. Looking forward to the experiment. If not... It's Windows for life (life of my hardware anyway cause we're broke musicians)
For the time being, it's certainly fun to goof with all of the free software out there like games, MS Office clones and stuff, Photoshop attempts, etc... some decent stuff out there and all and pretty neat to see my old equipment being as fast as some of my friends Macintosh and PC stuff.
