I'm just about to get rid of windows, in the middle of copying all the pics of the kids when they were babies to cd, but I'm wondering if anyone know whether wine is any good for audio/midi software before I make the plunge? any advice is much appreciated :-)

You may want to check http://appdb.winehq.org/to see if the Windows Apps you want work via wine

Also there are hundreds of these type of apps in the Ubuntu Software Center

Or you can try Ubuntu Studio

"MIDI should work in Wine as long as it works on your system in general, with some caveats."

I'd suggest you have a look at Ubuntu Studio (http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntustudio/releases/10.10/release/), instead of trying to use wine, Audio production depends on low latency, and wine if anything adds it.

Excellent - once I'm done with backing s*&t up I'll get rid of windows and do the above - thanks :-)
