right now I'll sawy I'd go with fedora core 3 - but i'm curious what
everybody else will say now that you wrote that

i'm after very much the same thing, actually

I was just talking about this with a friend - his opinion was go with FC3 or
Suse - although neither of us has used Suse.  his other opinion was go with
what Paul Davis recommends

> Thanks for all the input; I  now have a grasp on the
kernel/distribution/package concept. What I really need to figure out is
which combination is best for my situation. Let me clarify what my needs
are. Although it is a "home studio," I am in a professional situation
(meaning I have paying clients who expect things to run smoothly without any
"hold on while I reboot" or "that noise you hear is just --insert BS here--,
It won't be on the final product"). Although I am new to Linux, I have a
high technical aptitude and no problem with (or fear of) learning the most
complicated compiling procedures if need be. My main reasons for trying
Linux are: 1) I do not have the $$$ for a ProTools/G5 rig, and 2) I have
never liked Windows and dislike it more every day. What I need is the most
tried and true, stable and streamlined configuration without all the extras,
as my DAW is a dedicated machine. While I love the GNU concept and
appreciate what the Linux community has done, I don't h
>  ave the liberty of having a machine that is in constant need of tweaking
(although, once I have become more knowledgeable of Linux, I plan on using
it on my "personal" machines and contributing as much as possible). To sum
it up: stability is my major issue and I don't care how hard or time
consuming it is to achieve. Which configuration (distribution, kernel,
packages, file system, etc.) should I use?
