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.

on running from CD

While running an OS from CD is a nice way to ensure compatability and demo it to folks without partitioning thier drives.I can't see this running fast enough to do any real serious realtime audio,personally I think the dixtro should ship with a nice friendly graphical installer like Mandrake with a menu selecton to install to disk or run from cd.Somewhre in the ack of my mind I just dont see this veing as fast and effecient as BeOS at manipulating audio files ,but at least it's a step in the right direction.
