I thought of this in the past and who knows maybe we will see it one day.what about an operating system thats written to utilise cpu ram and run without need of unwanted background services.Just a bare bones system that DAW’s or video editing software can be installed on to utilise full power no need to do any tweaking or messing around.Able to accept component manufacturers drivers or maybe they write extra drivers to support? (There’s the tricky bit)
But how cool would that be? Probably cheaper no need to worry about going online and virus protection.Still have a connection and basic browser for updates ect.i use my daw with just windows fire wall for updates and never had a problem on trusted sites like here or plugin manufacturer sites.its hardly ever connected.and maybe because its not your standard os viruses probably wouldn’t be written to get in anyway?
As well as disk versions it could come on a SSD and use it duel boot style along side windows or apple os’s.
no need for loads of system folder’s and programs you hardly use just clean quick and fast.
and best of all DAW and plugin manufacturers would probably have better results writing their software with less bugs and give us more power.
I dunno just food for thought others might think this is a horrible idea?
