Not yet using for day-to-day, but I *DID* get Cool Edit 2000 to work under WINE. It took a fair bit of finagling to get it there, but it works! That was a "deal make/break" piece of software. :)

Yes, I know about Audacity, but I'm not crazy about how they set it up. I bought Cool Edit years ago, LOVE IT, and want to keep using it. :) I haven't "benchmarked" it yet... just did a simple record/play save/load test, which worked.

Any other software, the Linux versions are excellent... like Libre Office, Firefox, etc. so I know I'm good to go there. :)

I'm doing most of this tinkering in my "free time" at home, so progress is a bit slow.

Thanks for asking. :)

Just curious – does “tinkering with” Linux mean you’re using it day-to-day for real work? Is it your go-to OS? I’ve tinkered with many distros of Linux for many years, and I love Linux, but I still have to use Windows for real work.

Thank you, Dave. :) Excellent article, and I agree emphatically.

Extra bonus: He endorses Linux Mint. :) The more I tinker with it, the more I love it.

Willie warned us :-) my win7 machines never got close to win10, and my win8's stayed win8 by procrastination... no, i tried it on one and went back.
