So far, and strangely enough, puppy is looking like a contender. Though I
haven't actually tried PureDyne yet. (long story) Although puppy doesn't
have much that is useful to me in it's repositories (That I can find thus
far anyway) it is surprisingly stable and everything worked out-the-box
without any crashes or Xruns. That's gotta be a plus.
I was interested in trying puppystudio because I had used puppy many years
ago when it was very new. For an art installation project. We ended up
switching to DamnSmall (If memory serves) which is Slack based (If memory
serves) but I'd always wanted to have reason to try puppy again. There are
things about puppy I don't like but over all, it's fast and it's serviceable.
Of course, the immediate problem for me will be getting suitable
sampler/synth/instrument software into it. So far the only thing that comes
with it is Hydrogen. And I can't see anything else in the repository lists.
Which means I'll probably have to go out on a limb to install stuff. Which
means I probably won't do it. Right now at least. I'm taking the path of
least resistance for the time being. As it were. But puppystudio is
definitely a candidate.
Thanks once again to everyone for their suggestions.
Be absolutely icebox.
