Thanks to Nick, there is a good chance that my PC will be fully alive tomorrow. It's working now, I just need to call Microsoft to get my copy of Windows activated again. So hopefully that will go smoothly. So, yeah, this is a shoutout to Nick. Big up yourself. Much respect. Reprezent. All that jazz.

Here's another youtube link. There's this amazing singer called Tera Naomi, who apparently lives in L.A. (which means that Clint and Mike could theoretically go see her). Here's her song "Say It's Possible." I swear. It's almost like watching MTV back in the glory days, when they actually played videos. Anyway, I digress. I really dig her stuff. Check her out. Here's her website, too.

Windows?

Look Pete, Don't you think it is about time you transition over to linux? You know you want to. Windows=bad... Linux=good...

Well. Anyway. You should. Your PC would appreciate it.

It's just what you need. A new project with a steep learning curve. A chance to shake your fist at the screen and scream "why are you doing this to me?"

Of course you might have had plenty of chances to do that, using windows.

Well, think it over.

You know what? Linux doesn't work for what I do. Simply doesn't. Very very little of the music software that I use is available on Linux. I've looked at a little of what is available, and compared to the composition and performance tools that I have right now, I'm not impressed. It's not practical.

By the way, 'anonymous', who the hell are you?

Also, I'm comfortable with the music software that I use. Not worth two learning curves, one the operating system, the other the new software I would need to learn how to use if I switched OS. Just sayin'.

I'm very interested in playing around with Linux though.

Ok you're right. Good point actually- you have software solutions for your art, windows based, so why switch? I was just messing with you anyway. There are some software packages for sound creation and manipulation for linux/unix but I haven't any experience with them. The double learning curve as you said would be a pain.

If you want to play around with linux find yourself another PC with no clear mission (i.e., junk) and put linux on that. Then you can mess about with it and not interfere with your present setup. Of course you could always dual-boot. Perhaps with a second hard disk for linux, so you don't have to share space with windows.

You bring up an interesting point, too, when you say you are comfortable with the tools you have- the point being that in a real sense what you create with your tools is more important. I tend to focus on the tool itself all too often, which may explain part of my attraction to Gentoo linux in particular. (www.gentoo.org)

I'll send you a proper email sometime. Got to get a proper email I trust first. Hate the spam, you see.
