A Music Lover's Fedora Linux Workstation

We've got here our very first entry for "The $100.00 (USD) Coolest Linux Workspace Contest". It's from Mauricio, a Music Theory student. If he wins the contest, he says that he will be using the money to buy a USB mic for some serious music recording.

Check out Mauricio's Fedora Linux workstation:

Owner's note: My current system was built about a year ago and I do NOT dual-boot. I have been using Linux for almost two years. I started with Fedora, but tried other distros and always come back to Fedora.

I'm running Fedora 12 64-bit and I am waiting for Fedora 13 to be released... I can't wait! One of the monitors I cannot get to work... there was a bug in the first nvidia kmods, but it seems the patch has been implemented for a while now, but I never bothered to mess with my xorg.conf anymore since Fedora 13 is around the corner.

Thank you Mauricio and good luck!


  1. Hi Jun, I like the new layout by the way. May I know how you did the scrolling banner on top and the recent posts thingie :)

  2. @dannybuntu: It's a JavaScript slider. The tabbed menu navigation that I'm using at the sidebar is the same as this one:

  3. Nice. How I wish this was posted when linux was still my workstation.
    Anyway, I'll just stay tuned for other entries.

  4. cool lay-out the minimalist concept though but still great!!!

    ngil-ngil na gyud ning mga bol-anon sa web da..

  5. thanks for the compliments :)

  6. Thanks for sharing. That's all well and good about the hardware.. but could you also clue us in on what software you use in your work flow.

  7. @anonymous, for what kind of 'work'?

    I guess the main applications I use are:

    terminal :D

    If you were referring to what applications I use for audio recording... I must say I have not played with recording too much in Linux. I do use Audacity for general use, but nothing too fancy.
    For notation I still prefer the 'old-school' method of pen and paper; nothing beats that ;)

  8. Fedora Linux Workstation is the best workstation seems you have everything in your workstation and so many gadget I wish I could setup my own Fedora Linux Workstation too. Linux the best OS with 100% virus free because no executable file to run this OS

  9. Benito III RTFM! :P You know, "executable" is kinda different than ".exe"? Anywho... no need to drag, but I do agree Linux Workstation is the best. Best regards!
