You're very welcome Rui!
Hope you've had a good holiday - if you're back now that is?
I was pleasantly surprised to see qtractor coming in at #1 in the Ranks and Ratings charts for free hosts in the last 7 days when I just looked now which is also how I just spotted your comment!

even more thankful to you Dan
your review rating 10 might have something to do with it, i suppose :)

Realizing that a 10 rating is a friendly, but fictional and honorary perfection, qtractor is a fine achievement, and getting lots of improvements (the author has also released new instruments as well!). Linux as a DAW is very enjoyable, and easily acquired.
Studio 1337, AVLinux, KX studio add-ons, Remix-OS, Ubuntu Studio, Fedora CCRMA,
and quite a few others, have taken the configuration learning curve to new minimums,
and windows plugins are very usable, qtractor output can be easily summed with reaper,
festige, or dssi-vst output.
Those not subdued by piles of cash, might well get excellent performance using last-years computer,
in a fast RT linux, and discover some fine new software along the way. Yoshimi, rakarrack, and hydrogen,
and linux sampler, are getting updates, and make a solid core for composing using keys and guitars.
Burn a linux .iso to cd/DVD, or use unetbootin to easily install one on a usbstick. Reboot using early-boot menu
to avoid starting up your hard-disk windows gear.
Low floor, high ceiling!

most comments one reads in the interwebs about linux audio & music have been superficially negative, more over when comparing to the big non-free, closed-source, proprietary systems.
in that regard, yours is positively awesome and brave ;)
