Ah, a discussion of religion!

OK, enough kidding. Welcome and best of luck. Ardour is a great tool.
you'll have a great time.

As for distros, that's a very personal question and one that's best
left up to you. If you've not run Linux before look into PlanetCCRMA
which runs Fedora under the hood.

You might also look into 64 Studio. I have no experience with it
personally but it seems many use it.

I run Gentoo. I do not recommend it for a newbie unless you have an
interest in really digging into Linux and learning a bit more than you
might on some other distros. Gentoo is completely built from source so
it's slow to get running the first time but very stable in my

Anyway, welcome and good luck.
