So anyway, afterward, I decided to try installing Ubuntu Studio on my personal laptop as a dual boot set up with Windows. I've used Ubuntu Studio before, and really liked it, but it couldn't run (at this point anyway) Cubase or Pro Tools, and similar software like Ardour, while good, won't replace my need for Cubase and Pro Tools. So I figure a dual boot is a good way to go, so I can still run those softwares on Windows. Anyway, I spent almost the entire day (don't worry I got my work done first ha ha) trying to install it. Unfortunately every time it got to the point of installing the “GRUB” (a program which lets me choose Windows or Ubuntu Studio upon boot up) it would fail, and I was back at square one.
So, that was fun day, I had some time to go to the gym while it was installing the first time, which was nice, but the computer issues haven't been fun. Later I'll try installing “regular” Ubuntu (not Ubuntu Studio) and see if that works along side Windows and installs the GRUB. But we'll see, I'm not crazy about all the fiddling I'm having to do with Linux OS's to get them to do simple things (like install). But we'll see.
So what have you been up to? Have you ever tried Ubuntu or Ubuntu Studio, or another Linux “distro” before?
