The other Win10 machine has all my email/financial/OpenOffice, etc. Plus i use it for a lot of my browsing.
    Oh for sure! Been thinking about the longer term. I can't see myself paying the full price for Protools upgrade if/when I need to.
    I reckon Reaper on Linux would be a lovely place to be, if it was stable and all playing nice.

    No joke! I saved so much money building core2duo/quad machines and earlier.
    Got a real shock trying to part out a 'cheaper' i7 rig for a buddy a little while ago.

    "I reckon Reaper on Linux would be a lovely place to be, if it was stable and all playing nice."

    Go and have a chat with a guy called Folderol over at Sound on Sound forum Mr S. He is a long time devotee of Linux, don't know of he runs Reaper but he will know if it can be done.

    I loaned him my KA6 a couple of years ago for a month to try it on Linux. Worked a treat and he bought one soon after.

    Dave.

    Good to know. Thanks, Dave!
    Despite being 'experimental' the general feedback seems to be that things are working well.
    Most of the complaints I see are around finding compatible 3rd party plugins which, I guess, isn't really a surprise.
    Finding that they build for Arm 32+64 was a surprise!

    I've been clearing out old stuff in the basement and found some of my old computer magazines. Talk about an eye opener, most people today don't realize what computers were in the early 90s. There was a magazine called Computer Shopper. It was tabloid size and about 3/4 to an inch thick each month. On those pages were ads for computer parts, whole systems, monitors, hard drives, floppy disks. This was a typical issue.... Dynamite 486 fully loaded 66mHz for under $2000! You could buy and build anything you wanted from those pages.

    At the time I was in a computer club and we used to buy a whole CASE of 300 5-1/4" floppys for about $200. It was MUCH cheaper than buying a box of 10 at the store for $25.

    The best times were twice a year when Dayton Ohio had ComputerFest and HamFest. It was worth driving 150 miles with a couple of buddies to load up on cases, motherboard, processors. Prices would be 1/2 of what you could buy elsewhere. It took up the entire Hara Arena, including the parking lot. Put about $500 in your pocket and you probably came home with enough parts to upgrade the computer you built last year to the latest spec. Say goodbye to 33mHz, Hello 66mHz! Kick that RAM up to 256KB! No more creeping along at 300 or 1200baud, we've got the newest 2400 baud modem. It might only take you a day or so to get all the IRQs set on the various cards and get it all working!

    Now I can go up to Office Depot with $600 and come home with an I7 laptop with 8GB, solid state drive and all the trimmings. Its loaded with Win10 and it just works. No fuss, no problems.

    Incredible how much things have changed in a relatively short period of time!
    I'm too young to remember meets and swaps and that kind of thing, but I definitely remember the restrictions you're talking about and every upgrade completely blowing the last out of the water.

    I get the feeling you're going to spend more time in that basement than you originally intended!

    Yikes! Im afraid to post because I feel like such a dumb a$$. I scanned this thread but didn't see what I was looking for. Respectful of everyone's opinions I have a problem that I don't know how to remedy.

    I was using win 7 and both cubase and pro tools were working just fine. When I download win 10 neither works! Now I have both win 7 and win 10 on my PC and want to return to just win 7 when everything was hunky dory. How can I make this happen?

    Thank you for reading.

    Depending on the version both cubase and pro tools should work just fine on win10. What problems are you encountering exactly? As for returning to win7 you will probably need a recovery version, hopefully you made a back up? Your license should be good for both 7 and 10

    There was nothing good about those old days, IMO.
    These are the best days.
