I understand very little of that output.

I was thinking a dual-boot with OSX and Ubuntu, and not share a filesystem for the laptop.  My desktop is Linux-only.  I might put a FAT 32 system on an external drive if I want to share files.  I don't anticipate a lot of need for that since the sessions are not compatible between Pro Tools and, well, anything.

Thanks for your assistance.  I'm under a deadline, so the current project will be done in Pro Tools to make sure it gets done on time.    It's one song for a contest, the subission has to be in Sep. third.  I have another song I want to try producing with just open-source software.
