i wanted to say thanks for the distro. i love it. i am using it as a hobby songwriter and i completely switched to using linux 3 years ago. i had windows xp and cubase and rolands cakewalk but the soundcard i have which is an emu1212m was a nightmare to work with on windows. so when i got used to using ubuntu i started to use the live cd of 64studio more nad more and then one day completely erased windows and installed 64studio instead. i always recommend 64studio over ubuntu studio however and i will continue to do so. i am gratefull for the work done here on this distrubution. thanks. ps i am operated in my eyes so there my be spelling errors . hope it can be read anyway.
