Re: securing work environment - most underestimated feature of many modern motherboard
I have a dual boot system (separate SSD's) with my Win 10 Pro "Production" system and a second Win 10 "Insider" advanced OS. I have Sonar installed on both, although its just the basic Sonar on the Insider installation. However, if there were a problem to the point such as the OS suddenly was corrupted, I can boot with the Insider installation and at least do a session recording. Then later resolve the problem on the Production system and do whatever needs to be done to the recorded session, mixdown, etc.
