I have a very week windows 98 laptop to do some basic things with. This I don't think I'll change, but
MY desktop is Windows 2000, with lots of Web Editing Software, Oracle Database, Music Production software (SoundForge, Sonar, Acid, REcycle, REason, etc. Cubase too, but I have yet to work with it. I mostly work with Sonic Foundry and Cakewalk stuff, right now.), lots of WAV files, CD Burning, internet stuff, Microsoft Office, too.
So what is the smoothest way to change your OS, either to Linux (which is probably where I want to go) or, (evenetually, when I get the money) to the MAC? Can all or any of these programs be run on either OS, or do I have to buy all new software all over again?
