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.

Yes, I seem to have mis-interpreted you a bit.

Bugs are bad; bugs occurring with root privileges can be very bad

The worst case senario I can think of is loosing your work, since the OS and apps are free and only require the extra hour or so reinstalling.
But, if you aren't meticulous and change ownership on your files, they can still be whacked by a bug even if you run the app unprivileged.
