First post here, glad to see this community!
I want to use the new laptop I'm getting, to run a Linux-based DAW for performing (loop-based performing; MIDI guitar - sampling, synths; and electric guitar processing), recording, and sequencing. I'm completely new to Linux, but am intrigued by the benefits and want to run it as my primary DAW.
I was thinking of running Puppy Studio 3.3 RT. (http://puppystudio.tiddlyspot.com/
A few questions -
1. Is this distribution ideal for a beginner? (i.e. not too complicated to install and set up.)
2. If not, what distribution should I be going for? (Arch Linux, AV Linux, Tango Studio, Remix OS seem to be other contenders)
3. I'll also need to set up internet using a USB wireless modem - will that be supported?
4. Any other suggestions/words of caution for a newbie?
Thank you for your time.
