I was going to use a different link but chose this due to language in comments at other sites. https://www.engadget.com/2016/11/11/spotify-desktop-app-data/ from ars TECHNICA I always thought Spotify was a horrible experience on android, and the linux client had some frustrating behaviors but this! http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2016/11/spotify-testing-new-layout-desktop-player This seems like an interesting coincidence. We are always trying out new things on the unsuspecting user. OMG! is right.
1) EASE OF USE! Linux is not only simple, intuitive, and well documented. It is very easy to use. I am not saying linux is trouble free, but I have caused most of the problems I have encountered using linux myself. Free, low-maintenance goodness at warp speed on old hardware. I'll admit newer hardware can equal more problems using linux. But just give them time and the fix is in the mix. I include security and updates and general maintenance...etc... quick and easy. 2)CUSTOM FIT! Don't like your DE? Change it. You want to dedicate your harware to audio, video, astronomy, photography... e
Audiophile Linux is based on Arch Linux distribution. Old versions are based on Linux Mint. It’s absolutely free. Linux operating system Supported DACs and it’s kernel are distributed under GPL license. Might want to have a look at their Supported DACs first. http://www.ap-linux.com/ I haven't used ap linux but it seems their goals fit yours. Others have had problems with Realtek ALC887 driver. I don't know anything about it.
