    Wow.... Can't wait until Linux is mature enough for us mere mortals to use it for DAW work!

      The Linux OS itself can do the job, it just there is no really good native DAW apps. Ardour is OK, but if you are use to SONAR or other type of DAW, you probably won't be happy. REAPER can be run using WINE, but on my machine it felt kinda clunky - at least that is the best way I can describe it. And seeing that it is being run through an emulator (I know - Wine Is Not an Emulator, but I think you understand where I am going) and not native to Linux, it just seemed not as smooth (YMMV).

      Here's hoping that we will see something soon. Some of the video stuff on Linux is really good, as are the imaging programs. SONAR is the only thing I currently run under Windows (and I keep it offline as well). Everything else I do I run on Linux.

        So about that drive that I was going to use for data...... I unplugged it once while the system was running and corrupted it beyond repair. The tower is still running fine. So here is what I THINK . SOME HARD DRIVES DON'T LIKE BEING LEFT WITH OPEN FILES. Since Win10 likes to leave files open (by default) , this is the quickest way to kill a hard disk. Also, Win 10 likes a single hard drive with multiple partitions better than multiple drives. However , if your HD bearings go, that single hard drive will cost you dearly.

        So I may use that 1.5 TB drive for my TV box and swap it with my WD Passport 1TB. We'll see how friendly Win10 is with "My Passport".

          Weird......

          This morning I started up this Win10 laptop, tried to log in and it kept telling me that I was typing the wrong password. Nope, the CAPS weren't on and I very carefully and slowly typed in the password 3 or 4 times. So then I rebooted and everything seemed fine ???
