    It contributes to an unhealthy microbiome on top of everything else?

    I have grown to hate windows 10 and microsoft...surpassing my mere dislike for apple. I can't afford a new one or even a rebuild...Do any DAWs work with linux?

    I'm not sure Microsoft offers a legal way to just download a copy of Windows and install it. Usually you'd buy it on CD, DVD, or other media.

    If OP's computer is dead, then how is he posting on Strat-Talk?

    Ardour is good but not the most user-friendly. Audacity is a bit more basic but is still powerful for editing. You can also get Reaper for Linux but it isn’t free.

    Point one makes sense to me.

    Point two was answered very clearly in the very first post of this thread.

    Followed this thread with great interest. Yup, Windows uodated itself yesterday. Computer slowed down then I did a restart. A coiple of black screens only and several restarts it came back to life..... Maybe watching this thread was bad mojo...lol

    I only have the one Win machine and that was simpily required for work at home. I am a Ubuntu fan albeit I haven liked were the OS has been going since ver 11.04. I switched over years ago as IMHO XP was great but DOS was better. Got to love an OS that only does what you tell it to.:)
    I Scrapped a Windows desktop and now run my entire Ham radio station on a Raspberry Pi. As mentioned earlier by @Mr. Lumbergh I am now going to check out PCLinuxOS.

    My Point is thanks for all the great info and hope all your computer woes go away.

    As far as I know, downloading an operating system is not a problem, you just have to buy a key if you dont have one.

    At a London Albert King gig, the great man brought his friend Albert Collins out on stage to say hello - he didn't play anything, unfortunately. What I remember about that is that King was nearly 2 feet taller than Collins. o_O
