by Hawke Robinson published Aug 30, 2011 last modified Oct 25, 2015 11:12 PM — filed under:
I recently updated my Alienware by installing Suse 11.4 (& 12.1). As usual, I did not attempt to upgrade the existing 11.3 install, but instead performed a fresh install. Here is some information on what was necessary to make everything work as best as possible with this combination.

I am glad that a major DAW product has been created that supports Linux as well as Windows and Mac. Folks that previously worked for major DAW companies have gone independent and with much fanfare released their 1.0 product. ...

by Hawke Robinson published Jun 03, 2015 last modified Oct 25, 2015 11:59 PM — filed under:

Here I will log my experiences with Trinity Desktop Environment from the beginning, and progression.
