Re: Penguin Producer Redesign

maybe there's something I'm not aware of that would be beneficial for beginners into the media landscape? I don't know about the broader media landscape, particularly. As far as the Linux landscape is concerned, then tutorials on how to migrate from Photoshop to GIMP/Glimpse would be really useful,...

Re: Penguin Producer Redesign

Why bother when most of that information is out-of-date? The same reasons that Linux distros keep earlier versions available for download, and Wikipedia keeps its page history available to view. Redundancy is good and history is useful. Projects can get forked and earlier methods can return to use....

Recently, a number of unpleasant circumstances came together to wipe out the Penguin Producer website content, and I just found out the backups cannot be restored.

Hello everyone, from Beatle land. I'm in my 40s and I've spent the last 14 years noodling around with Linux. I never properly dived into the pro audio side of it until recently, after a Windows 7 installation went belly-up and I decided to make the switch full-time for general office/web software. I...
