Thinking about merging my two desktop computers. I have one machine pretty much dedicated to audio work (XP Pro) and another that I use for everything else (W7 64) - general web/email + photo editing, CD burning, DTP, etc. I'm thinking that in this day of 64 bit OSs, lots of RAM, quad core CPUs, fast hard disks - machines that are MANY times faster and more powerful than my first dedicated DAW - that there is probably enough overhead in today's computers that dedicating a machine with the OS stripped free of the fluff really isn't necessary. My work doesn't involved large track counts - rarely more than a dozen - it just seems a bit pointless to have two machines when they are both probably 10x faster than my old DAW was. Your thoughts?
