Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

" As with most hardware, the trick is to find a turntable that works with Linux. You might think that the USB connection would be enough to ensure compatibility, but some USB turntables require software specific to Windows or OS X to run.

"he best source of information is the Audacity wiki, where brand names such as Ion, Audio, Numark, and Lenco are recommended.

"However, you can also apply a simple general rule: Does the turntable come bundled with udacity? If so, then likely it is Linux compatible.
