I've been eyeballing that project for years. For a long time my studio
computer was the only I had not running Windows. Given how much Vista
seems to suck for performance, and the inevitable sunsetting of XP at
some point, I would still love to be able to get off of the Windows
bandwagon. There are a couple of big things tying me to my Windows
setup, currently, though. UAD-1 cards. And Native Instruments plugins.
I have too much $$ wrapped up in those to leave them behind and I
haven't seen any evidence that I can take them with me, yet.
I did download Reaper the other day and will probably use it for a few
of my personal projects to get a feel for it. If it's good enough, I
might switch the paying customers to that. I've been unhappy, to say
the least, with the stability of Cubase. Although I haven't really
exercised too much their most recent free update, so maybe they've fixed
a lot of their stability issues. Still, given how those guys seem to
develop software, I'm reticent to buy into whatever the next big for-pay
upgrade is. I'm pretty tired of broken-ware.
