Same with video (especially video - some colleges require their students own a Mac for film courses). In Wine the best audio program I've been able to run is Cool Edit Pro, which is miles behind the likes of Samplitude, Sound Forge, etc. Samplitude will install, but is severely crippled. Izotope Ozone will install, but you can't activate it out of demo mode. Etc., etc.

    Love what Linux is. Looking forward to what it can be.
    What about Fruity Loops Studio, or Ableton Live? I'm not into music production but from what I've seen those are the standard for audio production nowadays. Particularly if you're an independent artist, you're going to be using one of those two or both. If I ever get into that sort of thing though I'd likely just stick with Linux MultiMedia Studio (LMMS), which is basically a free version of FL Studio apparently. Also, despite the name, it's available for Windows, too.

    EDIT: Whoops, sorry for the double post, Firefox didn't show my last one. :/

    Sibelius 7 for composing music with notation and with video tracks. Nothing in linux matches this, not even Rosegarden. Sibelius and Finale are the two primary music composing/notation apps in the Windows world, no linux app is able to do what Sibelius does especially in terms of utilizing professional grade instrument libraries (see below)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfvwUBNg-X8 (Avatar movie scored using Sibelius)

    High end sampled instrument libraries for use with DAWs like Cubase, Pro Logic, and Sibelius: (I own these and more, but I can't use them on Linux and nothing exists comparable to even purchase to use with e.g. Rosegarden or Ardour or Reaper)

    Re: What can Windows do that Linux can't?

    Is this thread about what the two operating systems are capable of or about what software is available for each?

    Many people here can't seem to tell the difference between these two.

    I'm involved in a port of an old classic DOS game (does that count?) to Linux and other modern OSs, though you've probably never heard of it: Race Into Space

    Play every commercial game for PC, unintentionally get viruses, run the current Internet Explorer, use a few internet plug-ins (primarily games), *insert insult about closed source software here*.

    Of course, there are all of those things Windows can't do that Linux can, but surely posts have some character limit.

    What keeps the world in chains but your beliefs?
    And what can save the world except your Self?
    Belief is powerful indeed.

    Windows can empty your money pocket it can give blue screen and you can only use it for gaming or specific software that is just written for windows!
    So, your better of with a linux distro

    Just to name two Windows features by design which Linux cannot do: enforcing DRM and having built-in backdoors that allow the NSA to spy on you.
