Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I fail to see the common denominator of all those programs. How can you possibly choose audacity over lame, or the other way around? I use Ardour as daw, Audacity for quick editing, lame for encoding...
Yes lmms is impressive - I found it useful and easy to get up and running. Maybe not as many features or as pretty as some but so much nicer to work with in my opinion. Definitely deserves inclusion on the list
Distribution: Ubuntu Based (Mint and custom) 12.04
This is one area where windoze software spanks Linux and sends it whimpering away in a corner. Cakewalk and protools have no counterpart in Linux, although audacity is coming along. Needs better hardware support, filters and stuff yet..
Distribution: Linux Mint 8, Ubuntu Studio 9.10, DSL 4.1

Sadly, I must agree Poet. Although I'm familiar w/ProTools (cakewalk a LONG time ago), I use Reason, Cubase & FruityLoops way, way more.
Thx for the link, Smudge. I will definitely be investigating LMMS as it does look somewhat like FruityLoops. Whether or not it can hang w/the heavyweights of other studio-quality software, I'll have to see for myself (sure would be nice though, not to have to run Win at ALL!).
