Multimedia, AV I wanted to write something about the great progress being carried on linux as OS of choice for a professional Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) since a long time. With the inclusion of the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) into the 2.6 kernels, time has come to extend my experiences to all of you.

Re: The Right Tool

"There is something called 'the right tool for the job' and when it comes to a 'professional Digital Audio Workstation', Linux just isn't it. The OS has great potential, but the actual apps are plenty less capable than on other platforms."

However, things do seem to be moving quite fast. I think the next couple of years will see big improvements.
