Burning vinyl to CD to preserve it. Had a "beefy" Win XP pc that messed up the burn if I tried to do anything else on the pc at the same time. Had an older much less capable box w/o a Win license so decided to try record and burn on that. Worked wonderfully. Could record a side while creating tracks from an earlier recording with Audacity and while burning an album recorded and edited earlier. MULTITASKING for real.
Started using the Linux box for web browsing/email at the same time doing the record/edit/burn of my albums. Never any bad burns on the CDs. I was sold. Linux from then on.
