I'm running AVLinux 6.01 right now with Reaper installed. So far the best performance I got. No xruns or weird crashes. Seems to run smooth. I tried a lot of the other applications also. My most experience is with Qtractor with some instrument plugins. But that occasionally crashes too. There are a lot of apps on the distro, but I do find it helpful to see all the options that exist under Linux. Occasionally I'll use Hydrogen to put together a quick drum track and export into Qtractor or Reaper.
Problem I have with this is I still don't feel completely confident in Linux as a DAW. I still have my Windows partition where I do all my real audio work. Linux is more experimentation and hoping I can get it stable. But I do enjoy playing with it.
