Multimedia, AV I wanted to write something about the great progress being carried on linux as OS of choice for a professional Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) since a long time. With the inclusion of the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) into the 2.6 kernels, time has come to extend my experiences to all of you.

As long as you can record, edit and mix with a few common plugins (comp,eq etc), you can make an album.

I agree 100%. What is more important to me is performance. To be able to squeeze in a lot of tracks with high quality effects on one CPU is important, that's the reason I prefer to use lighter software.
Also, a huge amount of features can very well decrease your creativity. I found myself much more creative with the 4-channel portastudio I used in my early teens than with the current audio recording software. But the problem with the porta was the low audio quality.
