Windows Heck, Microsoft really weren't kidding when they said Windows 7 was the fastest-selling operating system in the world. NetApplications released its figures for January 2010, and it seems that after only three months of availability, Microsoft's latest baby has already hit the 10% market share mark.

Which is exactly what I said.


Heh, yeah I noticed that now ;)

So yes, you can product in Linux but it's not worth the hassle if you plan to take producing seriously.


The previous poster seem to disagree with you.

Who? google_ninja?
He echoed the same points I had.

Or do you mean Jokel, who repeated on a number of occasions that his main DAW was running on XP?
Ok, granted he's running Linux too, but as secondary systems and the whole bulk of his comments were about his progress in migrating is studio over to Windows 7.



As I said before, I know I'm being negative and I really do want Linux DAWs to succeed but FOSS just can't compete with commercial professional packages that often retail for hundreds of $$$s.

So, if you're only producing as a hobby and don't mind spending time tinckering with your system or not having certain tools at your disposal, then I think it's great that people are considering Linux.
However if you want to take music production seriously, then Windows and OS X are simply the better choices.
