I won't recommend installing something outdated like Debian stable.
I also don't like to recommend the usage of Arch Linux and similar
distros, since we can't expect that everybody using Linux, is willing to
spend hours to install a DAW.
It's a shame that the usage of the good Linux audio software can't be
used by every musician when installing a major distro, just because a
stable graphics driver is dropped, pulseaudio cause issues and a
kernel-rt often has to be compiled by the user. Even experienced Linux
audio users are disunited about the kernel-rt's config.
If Linux audio software like Ardour and Qtractor would be available for
Windows and assumed Windows would fulfill my needs regarding to hard
real-time, I would install it by now. I don't like this Linux policy
that is hostile to audio. We are living in the media age, instead of
switching to flashy crap like GNOME3 and Unity, integration of the Linux
pro-audio software should be done.
For what reason the nv driver is dropped right now?
