Now adays, there is no reason to, unless you have a particular love for a certain kind of proprietary software. I like fruity loops because of the way their piano roll is structured (i've used free versions), but at this point i'm much more interested in linux mastery than I am quick routes of making good music: you don't even need computers to make good music, just pick up an instrument. I've been making music for almost 20 years now. Linux much better serves my philosophical and creative desires. As others have pointed out, Audacity by itself is really powerful and functional, i used it to edit some old music i made a long time ago. OP says open source is a joke, but i don't that is valid unless you say software is a joke, which is often the case
Well, what is it? My current plan is reformat windows to further diagnose my steinburg problem, then just get another interface and replace windows with AVlinux, I've actually completely lost interest in proprietary daws because there's a ton of open source stuff available, and I've had fun with Linux over the past 5 months...I've run out of most of my desire to keep using windows
It doesn't help a Tesla driver that SpaceX flies to Mars.
I'm from germany, from memory it went like this: The state of Bavaria switched to a self-made Linux distribution somewhere in the 2000s I think. There were problems with usability, compatibility and training with the open-source software but it seemed to work. Then MS built their new germany central in bavaria and after that the open source project was dropped. Officials said because of incompatibility, does not run MS office and all this bs.Only 1 state of Germany I think
I'll add one more link to your selection.WIZARD'S RECOMMENDED READING
This one is about the Pi's up at the space station
These three are about Linux being on all 500 of the world's top super computers.

On Business - this one I found interesting but it is a long read. It was published January this year, based on 2020 figures estimating the Linux global market at USD $4.57 billion in 2020 and forecast to more than triple by 2028 with USD $18.78 billion.
I have a little more on the issues in this Thread on my tomorrow, but for now this Wizard has to fly
That article pretty much sums up the difference in philosophy...i will say, however, that you don't "have to" obey traffic laws Just because i'm so familiar with the area i live in, i run red lights all the time when i don't see any cops around and there's very little or no traffic.
I been using Linux for 8 years or so and I'm still learning new things.You sound like LinusTechTips who who only tried to jump from Windows to Linux in a month, you can't just expect Linux to work like Windows and there to be no learning experience when going from one os to another. It took me 1-2 years to learn to actually understand Linux when it was a new for me, after I learned enough to understand I didn't run into much else, gaming was a pain back in tot 2010 but that has been mostly solved now. In short this post wasted your time and the time of everyone who responded including me because Linux just works for most of the people here. Finally use what works for you and if that is Windows, join a Windows forum.
