well i've pretty much given up on linux for audio, since I can't get any drivers to work with the echo Mia. I'll probably nuke the partition, reinstall windows, reorganize the hard disks on that machine, and swap in the faster motherboard I've got here...|
on the upside, linux-wise, there's a kajillion cool looking screensavers in KDE that it shuffles through randomly. They look cool on my 17" monitor.
Be that as it may, the Fedora distribution is really pretty cool, if you have some sort of regular consumer audio. It's dead easy to install, runs great even on older hardware, and gives you all sorts of good software for everyday tasks, including a MSOffice clone that works fine and opens MS Office documents. It's just a hacker's nightmare (or dream) if you want to do something off the beaten path. I already do that kind of crap all day at work, I ain't going to do it at home.
