I know what hardware spec I'd put in a server, and what spec I'd put in
a standard workstation, but can anyone give me some idea of what a
decent spec is for a Fedora Music / PlanetCCRMA / etc workstation is
please? Do I really need a quad-(or more-)core system? what about RAM?
etc? Assume I've done all the sane things like install Jack, kick
Pulseaudio to the curb where it belongs, disable unnecessary services,
etc. My current box is an "AMD Sempron(tm) Processor 3000+" based
system, but it seems to struggle with even the most basic tasks, and I
struggle to see why. I want to be in a situation where I can be 75%+
sure that the hardware is fast enough and not causing me issues.
I don't hold with this (apparent) Microsoft philosophy of that the newer
version of windows is faster, but that's because your new PC that comes
pre-installed will be faster by virtue of Moore's Law, so I usually
refrain from upgrading hardware too quickly, but this whole Fedora Music
thing is a different ball-game for me, where I really genuinely might
need the extra resources for a useful purpose.
