Update: I just upgraded my primary workstation to the full KXStudio as a test. Details at the end of the post
I have long been wanting to replace the Windows operating system on our studio machine with Linux, but haven’t for a number of reasons. Recently the machine has been having fits and garbled a very important interview, so it came time to wipe it and start over.
Our home server took a dump, so our regular studio box took its place. Reconstituted server hardware is now in the studio, however it is less than ideal. It was my primary desktop machine about 7 years ago sporting a 1.1 GHz AMD AthlonXP processor and 1 gig of memory (system bus is only like 200 Mhz), so it’s limited in what can be expected from it performance-wise. Someday the studio will get a proper hardware upgrade. It would help if we sold the friggin’ house though.
