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.

And even as the tools improve, assuming other tools on other platforms continue to evolve, it may end up always bing 2 or 3 steps behind.

Well, it also depends on your needs. Many people just use the DAW as a multitrack tape recorder and don't need a lot of advanced features.
Also, pro audio apps hasn't come that far in the past 5 years, and I don't think it's going to go any faster, probably slower, so catching up wouldn't be that hard to do.
