Audacity is the first multitrack recorder I've gotten to actually work on Linux, and it works pretty well. Unless you have /tmp on a large partition you might want to change its tmp directory, and it helps to have a lot of RAM if you want a lot of tracks. With a half GB of RAM it started to get unstable at 16 tracks and made significant use of swap. YMMV.

Had this been a choice when I voted it would have been a tough call between it or xine.

I just like these message boards, they kick mine in the....

I also am really enjoying linux.. within over a year I have been around linux.. in the past month I have really learned the most.. and this time I am really thinking about ridding myself of windows complety.. I just need to know linux like I know windows.. and then it would be safe to get rid of windows...

Since I really don't watch video or DVDs on my computer (I have a very nice widescreen television for that), my vote goes to XMMS.

IMHO, on par with XMMS (but not on the list) is mpg123. I spend a lot of time in BASH, and having a command line mp3 player saves a lot of hassle from switching back and forth from X.

Did you download the XMMS mp3 codecs for Fedora Core?

They don't come with the software...you have to install them yourself. That should allow you to play mp3's.

need to get mp3 support at freshrpm's.
also ntfs support sucks... New users try fedora core (or mandrake), and they think that linux is incompatible with windows!!!

alot of friends wanted to stop using linux for that. I guess I can't let them statrt with slack .

you got wine...

really, the only reason to keep windows is games. Which is changing on this moment (doom3 will be released for linux!).

Switch as fast as possible, the only way to learn linux.
