First off hello forum, I have not installed Linux so I'm newer than a newbie. I have come to a dead end with Windows. A recent hard drive failure has forced me to re-think my system. I was very comfortable using Windows 7 but aware of the impending cease for support. Even though I would love to break free from the shackles of Windows I just can't see a way forward with linux. The biggest issue I have is I use ableton 10 suite (DAW) which is not supported in Linux. Also as far as I can see there are no accounting software programs available on Linux that are going to be supported by HMRC. I can't see the point in using Linux as an OS then having to run Windows 10 in Virtualbox or running a duel boot machine. (Log in to hide this advertisement) Has anyone successfuly used Ableton in Linux and can anyone shed some light on a practical solution to accounting requirements. I really want to swap but feel I cannot. Any help or suggestions appreciated.
