Finally started updating my UbuntuStudio machine. Let's see if I can revitalize this one and make it my dedicated recording machine.

OK, turns out the machine is still a bit noisy as soon as it has run a bit, and I don't know if that will work well with recording.

(My dad fixed it for me because it made a jarring rattling noise after a certain time under load, and he claimed it went away, but I'm skeptical.)

Using my Windows laptop it is, then. That laptop doesn't have enough disk space for a dual-boot system, so I probably need to re-learn my audio skills on Windows.

It also means that I have to find alternatives to all the open source tools that I used to use under Linux, as long as there aren't Windows ports of them. And because this femme is broke af, they need to be free as in free beer.

OK, now that I've put my UbuntuStudio machine through all of the updates, it seems that it might work... just have to get used to the noise again. Gosh, I am so pampered by my good laptop.
