Peter Kšhlmann Drones? We are constantly trying new software, new hardware and so forth. In fact many of us get labled "gear slutz" because of it. I doubt you will find a professional field where the users are more into technology than professional audio or video. Much of this is because the technology changes by the hour, but we are still searching for the perfect sound. As for trying Linux, many of us have and it's been a huge disappointment why should we continue to waste time with Linux other than checking in once or twice a year to see that not much, as far as professional audio, has changed? Clients demand a certain set of professional tools and gigs are lost and won based upon this concept. Is it fair? Is it smart? Maybe not, but it's a way of life. I run a studio using Cubase SX3 and I can tell you for a fact I have lost clients because I do not run Nuendo. I can see you know little about this field so I will explain that Cubase SX3 uses the same audio engine as Nuendo and is in fact 90 percent of what Nuendo is minus the post production and control room features. These clients I lost had no need for post features, but I still lost them because I was using Cubase instead of Nuendo. Odd thing is all of them came in with Cubase SX3 projects! They just learned a buzz word and that was that. This is the way this biz works, like it or not. Now if you are a sole operator, with no outside help-collarberation, maybe Linux would suffice. It's certainly cheap enough buttuming you have the enormous amount of time it takes to learn, I can't say. What I can say is that the Cubase LE program that is included with most interfaces blows the doors off of anything I have coming from Linux so why even bother with Linux?
