A netbook is by no means the recommended platform for recording, but I've seen people run Fl Studios and Maschine on them. To be honest with you if it's running a "netbook" processor like an Intel Atom processor or something along those lines you'll run into all kinds of errors.

Best of luck on that, bruh. Since there's no Linux-compatible version of Pro Tools you're stuck with using the Wine wrapper to install/run it, and I have yet to see a single Linux distro that can successfully run Pro Tools. Now, on the other hand, I've seen (and actually run) FL Studio on Ubuntu but that was quite sometime ago, granted it was an older version of both the OS and the DAW. If you are dead set on installing Linux on your netbook and would like a multi-track recorder, Traverso is pretty good (and free). Oh, and there's a Linux version of Audacity as well.

I forgot all about LMMS, bruh! Probably the closest you'll come to a native FL Studio on Linux!

if you use linux as your OS, you can get a free and open source DAW called LMMS. LMMS is a free open source DAW with similar functions to Fl studio. It even opens FLP's. try it out

enjoy
