I do. Don't know why, except that I like trying new things. But I hear
from others that it feels faster, and I beleive that myself, although it
might not be true. :)

Thats true, when you mention it. The machine has frozen running jack
a couple of times. But only when running ardour. But that could
have been a bug in ardour or jack, and not in linux. I can ping the
machine, so it can be the watchdog thats not working. Is the
watchdog supposed to work?
