[ardour-users] OS Question

Just to add my 2 pennies here.

I am running my studio computer with a delta 1010LT. This works
perfectly and the envy24 controller is very easy to work with. All of
this was magically included in the PlanetCCRMA packages, so don't worry
about the ALSA/OSS stuff. Just go to the Planet and follow the EXCELLENT
step by step directions.

Please note that the delta 1010LT has only 2 balanced inputs with 8
other unbalanced inputs. This is great for me as I generally only record
through a stereo preamp. 

Cedega runs many many window$ games without difficulty. They list all of
the compat games on their site. 

I have had no trouble running Crossover even on my studio machine. This
runs M$ Office and Quicken without any problems at all.

I am interested to hear that external USB2 drives work well with Ardour.
I would've assumed that the transfer rate was too slow. I'll have to try
this out! 

I have my music partition on a separate physical drive from the rest of
my OS. This has been recommended on several sites and these
recommendations have been echoed in this thread.

So why are you using VNC to access your samba shares, by the way? Why
don't you simply mount them when needed? There should be absolutely no
problem accessing this server across different distros of linux. 

Good luck - this is an interesting thread!
