OK, well... I just Googled Adour...

This is on the main page:

"You'll need to build this yourself. That can be a challenging and complex process, especially on Windows and OS X. We don't provide help for this process, and we can't support the end result. But if you're hoping to modify Ardour or get involved in our development process, this is where to start."

That's not going to work for me. It sounds like a rabbit hole.

This is only for the latest builds.

There are some older, stable binary versions in the official Ubuntu repositories.
Arch / Manjaro has the current versions (either in the official repos or the AUR).

You might also want to install a realtime or low-latency kernel from the official repository of your preferred distribution.

I wrote a basic installation document for a friend of mine. I'll see if I can find it when I get back from work.

Yeah, I'm not concerned about using the most up to date builds. I'm still running OS 10.7.5 and Win 7 ;)
I'm just worried about Microsoft dropping support for Win 7. I'm hoping to find another stable audio editing solution before that happens.
I appreciate your help.

This is my how-to for setting up Ardour 5 and jack2-dbus on Arch-based distros (Arch, Manjaro, Endeavour OS). 
If you're new to Linux and want to avoid most of the "rabbit holes" you've mentioned, I'd recommend Manjaro.

jack2 is a low-latency audio server. It's the Linux equivalent of the ASIO drivers in the Windows eco system that Voltronic had mentioned earlier...

Awesome if_then_else. Thanks . What type of PC is needed to run this? Any PC that can run Win 7?

In principle: yes. I'd recommend at least 8 GB of RAM, though.

Before I start researching, will I need a Phd in Linux to make this work? I'm becoming comfortable with Ubuntu, but if it gets too command line heavy I get lost. Your description seems to imply there are some workarounds involved.
One of the things I like best about Linux is the availability of online help.
The fact that it's not MS or Apple means you get a lot of smart & independent-minded folks in the user base.

Before my last laptop died, Linux (regardless of distro) and UEFI didn't mix well. Ran like molasses on a cold winter morning in Maine.

Been playing around with the live USB version of MX Linux. Seems to work nicely with the new hardware and even running off an USB stick it seems pretty quick. May have to create a dual-boot machine so I can play around in *NIX-land again...

Thanks Life In Rewind.

Follow-up on this...

After looking at and trying various LINUX options I decided to resurrect a Windows 10 desktop computer I stopped using. I had to re-buy a couple of Waves plug-ins, because the old versions I had were not compatible with Windows 10. But I got them on sale and they weren't as expensive as I thought they'd be. Also, Windows 10 isn't as bad as I thought it was. It has some quirks, but it's still supported by Microsoft, which is what I need since Win 7 is a lame duck.

I am still intrigued with Linux, and have been running tests with various distributions on an old MacBook. I just don't have the time or patience to figure out everything I need to make a good LINUX DAW now. So far, I really like Ubuntu-MATE. It runs pretty well on a MacBook 2,1 I have. That old MacBook has optical inputs and outputs which are important to me. I also have a Win 7 Gateway laptop that I'm going to start trying with LINUX. The only digital output on that is an HDMI port that I can feed to my amp, so that may be my best bet on having good LINUX DAW to mess around with.

All my machines dual boot.  No need to choose one or the other.

I think that's where I'm eventually headed. I just have to find a Linux distro I really like. I'm fighting all the terminal commands that are still needed to do simple things like install some software. I know I'll eventually get it down, but it's kind of a pain in the ass. Though I did plenty of command line stuff before Windows came out when I used DOS. I used to complain about Windows 3.1 back then, because I thought I was losing control by ditching the command line I loved in DOS.

Maybe I should mention Ubuntu Studio? It's a Linux OS flavor which is made particularly for A/V production

Thanks morst. I haven't seen that one yet. I'll look into it.

I have been meaning to stick a now-cheap 500GB SSD (or some such) in my tower and make it boot Ubuntu Studio... If you need personal assistance, it will motivate me to build a workstation using only free and open-source tools. That would be for the best. Hit me up and challenge me, Chuck!

Any suggestions for Linux HTML editors? I still use MS FrontPage with my Windows 7 computer.
