I'm looking for suggestions on a distro that would fit my needs.
I have so far very limited Linux knowledge.
Basically I want to use a Linux system as a desktop and as a DAW with multi-track recording and sample libraries and MIDI. I also want to be able to easily set up windows VST plugins, which is supposed to be possible through dssi-vst.
I also have a large music library in various formats so a good flexible file manager would be great.
As my music player I intend to use Foobar2000 with WINE.
I want my system to be as easy as possible, with little need for configuration and things running well out of the box.
Antoher thing I'm concerned about is if I should should stick to a distro that uses a certain package format. It seems like there is more and better updated software for Debian based distros.
Please share you opinions and experiences
