The The Restaurant at the Edge of the Universe, previously known as The Water Cooler, is a place to post stuff that has absolutely nothing at all to do with computers, broadband, Scot's Newsletter, or anything that's "supposed" to be here.
Nice work on the infer/imply dichotomy. (Haha now we have to look up "dichotomy").
I was most dismayed to install the new Harrison Mixbus 32C v6 on both Win 10 and AVLinux and find the GUI works much better on Win. Freezes up with more than 2 plugins showing in AVL but I tested with 8 plugins open in Win with no problem. It's a known frustration with Mixbus/Linux/Nvidia judging from posts on the forums. Something to do with the Nvidia graphics card and OpenGL used for the plugin GUIs. And no, Nouveau is just as bad.
I'd really like to stay with Linux for audio work though, the backend is better.
So I'm the same arbitrary level number as Eric, I guess, #1 in my scale. 😏 Linux for most stuff, dual-boot Win when needed. Can't be bothered with Wine or Steam though, I only have about 2 games on Win, which I hardly play lately anyway, Ace Combat 7 and NFS: Most Wanted (2012 version).

Interesting the netinstall only installed the non-free firmware packages actually needed by the hardware. Not unexpected though as that is a configuration option with the advanced install. It's also possible to install every firmware package in case you want a portable installation.
You're the #1 Sunrat, though.
Nah... because level 6 states:
Level 6 You run Windows but run Linux on a separate machine.
This implies that Windows is the PRIMARY OS used. That's definitely NOT the case for me. The ONLY time Windows gets booted on my machine is to play S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Chernobyl (a mod of the original three games in the series). And lately, this hasn't been happening much. I haven't booted Windows in about three months, if I remember correctly.
So, there... JMO.
Edited: to correct my incorrect usage of the word "infer" in place of the corrected "imply", as per Fowler's Dictionary of Usage (1965):
Now you've learned something. It wasn't a wasted day.
