    Since you're going to have to run it in some kind of emulation (there is no native linux version of Traktor), I'd say you're in for a bag of ass. There's a lot of low level stuff going on to facilitate things like hot swapping and streaming, and those aren't going to work as well running emulated.

    If you truly need to switch to Linux, look for apps that run on it native. Keep an eye on apps like Mixvibes Cross.

    At WineHQ it's rated platinum. But I don't have traktor so I can't try it out for myself.

    i dont have to switch to linux. its more of a, i wonder if it runs better. and linux is more stable than windows (im running vista and never had an issue with traktor). so its an experiment. ill keep everyone updated on it. anyone have a method for putting traktor through the paces?
