What is the OS percentage for Renoise?

I went 100% Linux [Ubuntu Studio 19.10] a week ago. I had been in Windows 7 for 10 years; I tried Windows 10 once and I’d rather be eaten alive by a Scorpion. I had licenses in Windows 7 for Renoise, Reaper, Mixcraft 8 and FL Studio, and technically Abelton Light that came once with my Arturia MInilab.

Best thing I ever did to go full Linux. What is the % of Linux users who use Renoise?

According to your reply that you had struggle to untar file for 1 hour, you surely didn’t go “full linux” but i’m glad that you made the choice. Sooner or later you will get along with it just fine. You can find documentation about anything online nowadays. Get comfy with terminal, use man pages etc…

I personally use arch on my personal laptop, but i have company’s laptop which is MacBookPro (which i hate utmost)

Heya…

Could’ve set up a poll. Then you’d see how the active forum users are set up.

I’m also Linux fan since many years. Never looked back to windows. In the first years some things were sometimes frustrating, but the Linux ecosystem has developed pretty nice in the last years. Even with more and more commercial software popping into the market, when first there were almost only free programs, that aren’t always on par with the standard…which means more and more professional DAWs and plugins available for us soundguys… Also hardware support has become increasingly better over the years. Though you might still find some hardware that will work flaky or not at all…

I seen in another thread that you’re fresh to Linux and have stuff to learn. Don’t hesitate about the Linux community, in Linux wikis and forums and even on this forum you can get very good learning and support for free, as long as you are respectful and take some attention to formulating the question the right way and providing the right info from your system. At least until you have learnt the basics and found how to google the problems the right way, and tell bad instructions (that break your system™) from appropriate ones.

Once you learn to fix problems yourself and get some experience with scripting, you will as a side effect learn how to customize your system in many very unique ways, that windows and mac people would never dare to dream about. And there are huge resources on the net with info, programs, modules etc. to add to or change your system with, all for free, …

I mainly use Windows 10 for media stuff (which includes Renoise).
