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.

See those who are using Linux for Audio

I've read many times in this thread, Linux cannot be used for real audio use, and I also read, yes, Linux is ready.

To those, who think, Linux is not ready: This month there will be the second Linux Audio Conference, see

4 days crammed with about 40 talks, plus 4 long concerts, including one Linux Sound Night. Linux already is used by many musicians and composers for serious work, especially of course in the academics world, but this always is the avantgarde: Computer music was invented by academics, now everyone uses it.
