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.

@ all
thanks for the kind words this is just my first article ;)

@ trumpetmic
I'm afraid it would be very boring ;)
anyway follow the links I provided at the end of the article for tons of howtos. Also, depending on your linux distro, you'll find easy ways to get Jack & Co. installed on your box: do a search for "agnula" o "planet ccrma".

regarding VST
VST support is actually a reality, with some exceptions. I didn't put anything VST related into the article because it's too early to party.

regarding the future of Linux
I love linux. Unfortunately I don't have any crystal ball and I can't say "where it will go tomorrow". But I see *no point* in just blaming linux because third party hardware or software vendors don't support it...

Linux _is_ already there
