    I had a little difficulty with putting CDs on my wife's mp3 player until I downloaded ripperx.

    Not had problems like that Linds I'm referring to music making programs where I can plug a synth in use loops generate loops etc. I did discover LMMS (Linux MultiMedia Studio) which is good and I do use that on Windows as it will operate on anything.

    Oh yeah got that too on Windows.
    Think I had the very first version.
    It's certainly a good editor but not much more.

    Has anyone used Wine on linux, please?
    I will have to read round the subject because it does not look straightforward.
    I have had a paid for copy of OS Memory Map for windows for some years and would like to get it working.
    regards

    I like Macs but I don't like that they are overpriced. Like Ralph Lauren they charge for the name. I love my Chromebook. A fraction of the price of a Mac and, like a Mac, practically immune to viruses. And it synced itself to my Android phone and tablet.

    I am thinking of buying a new computer, and I have nearly settled on a Chromebook as it is in my price range.

    I have something to look forwards to now with the Chrome OS, which should will **** all over win 10 and it's vagaries.

    I am very happy with my new Acer Chromebook, which is running the Chrome OS 74.0.3729.159 (Official Build) (64-bit). One I logged into my Google account, it updated all of the native apps and imported all of my settings , bookmarks etc. It then offered to upgrade to the latest version of the Chrome OS, this took all of ten minutes to download and install, no bloated Win updates.

    Macs are worth every penny. Never ever had anything go wrong with any of mine. And you get what you pay for.

    My Samsung J5 Pro smart phone updated to Android 9.0 (Pie) operating system yesterday.

    Fifteen minutes from woah to goah, downloading 1.2 gig and installing in that time all ready to go.

    No wonder I detest Microsoft Win 10.
