I don't understand why everyone who tells me about some new Linux
thing has apparently had a breeze of a time with it, and yet when I
try it it never works.  I just downloaded and installed 64studio (I
didn't boot Linux for the remainder of my semester, like I promised
myself), and I find that jackd crashes out of the box (i.e. set to
46.4 ms latency).  It kind of feels like I have another Debian install
just like the previous one, only it doesn't detect the ethernet so I
can't search for help on the same machine.
After a few weeks using Windows, I'm not even sure why I was so intent
on Linux.  I think for a few weeks I was actually enjoying the
struggle.  I'm not now; is this going to be less of one?
