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.

I just now found that Audition does not support VST, to my annoyement. This is most likely not because of technical issues, but purely buisiness-related.

*THIS* is much of what you're running away from when you choose Linux Audio or any other kind of free software. In time, and partially already, this obviosusly imposes _BIG_ advantages.

Just learned that the no-cost-version of Protools has an implemented editing 'anti-feature', wich makes it quite useless. This, again, is a buisiness-related problem, and would never be an issue in Free Software.

We just want apps wich are logically and good built, NOT quarrels and financial warfare between companies, wich seriously sets back much of the potential in good PC and Mac-hardware.
