Multimedia, AV On Saturday March 20, I spent my lazy Saturday morning browsing the web for Linux news. I surfed over to DistroWatch.com & read the latest happenings in regards to Linux distributions. I read a news blurb on latest release of dyne:bolic 1.2. dyne:bolic is self described as a free multimedia studio in a GNU/Linux live CD. I was intrigued by the prospect of playing with a multimedia studio on live CD that won't interfere with my PC's current setup. I downloaded the ISO via Azureus Java bittorrent client. I burned it to CDR using K3B and booted my DAW off the dyne:bolic CD.

Can it open *.acd files?

Can Dyne:bolic open *.acd files created by SonicFoundry's ACID line of products (now owned by Sony)? I use SonicFoundry SoundForge to manipulate *.wav's and SonicFoundry ACID Music to make beats, which are saved with the .acd extension. I notice the author points out the absence of Ardour and Rosegarden, but the homepages for those two projects doesn't mention ACID compatibility. I know nothing about Linux multimedia manipulation but would like to, since it's another think keeping me dual booting instead of only booting Linux.
