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.

Thanks for writing this. An introduction and howto in one, very neat.

To the person saying Linux needs "commercial audio applications". Who says the current applications aren't commercial?

For example if you like Ardour, i suggest you consider donating a few bucks to Paul Davis (the main author).

What you really meant is that you wanted to see commercial, proprietary applications for Linux.

Personally i feel no need for that since i don't like to be forced to pay for doing some amateur experiments. Obviously, some people here would likt that. All i can say is: mail the company behind the proprietary (commercial or non-commercial) application and ask for a port or the source and we'll see. If they don't know there's a demand they won't fullfil the demand.
