Ubuntu Studio now uses XFCE, and that's what I plan to use.

I know Linux isn't compatible with everything. One of the first things a person should do is check if their hardware is supported. Most of my stuff is onboard, on a common mainboard, so that's easy enough. My only concern was my audio card, and I found a compatible one to buy.

I have no plan to use Wine or anything that requires it. I'm ditching Windows programs/plugins entirely. Having Reaper for Linux (natively) was one of the last things I was waiting for before trying Linux again.

For that matter I have no plan to use JACK. I want to run things "in the DAW" like I did in Windows. Reaper no longer requires JACK for MIDI, and I have enough plugins that are native Linux VST, so I'm good there.
Core i3-6300 - MSI B150M Mortar - 8 GB RAM - Asus Xonar DX - MX Linux (MX-18_x64) - REAPER for Linux
