Multimedia, AV Browsing Freshmeat tonight, the premier online Linux software repository, I came across to these two great (and brand new) applications, ReBorn and ReZound. Reborn, a Rebirth clone that will soon become open source according to the developer, provides a software emulation of three of Roland's most famous electronic musical instruments. It got me thinking as to how much more viable Linux is today as a professional (or semi-professional) audio platform than it used to be two years ago. Update: On a related multimedia notice, WinAMP 3.0 for Windows was released yesterday.

> Btw, there's also no mention that I've already written one book about Linux sound software.

No, there is not a mention of any books, neither I will mention projects that half-work or do not work at all, like FreeBirth.

Also, I tried to cover *applications*, NOT libraries, or architectures like ALSA. Also, I do mention Ardour.

>No mention of LADSPA, no mention of the Linux Audio Developers and Linux Audio Users mail lists

Even if I knew about these, I would still not mention them in that specific article. This article was just a mentioning of applications that someone could download and install and play with them immediately.

This web site is not about audio, it is about operating systems, therefore, when I want to get a bigger breath and do something fun, like this article, you don't have to stick it in my ass. You should even be happy that I did wrote as much as I wrote there, and made the Linux audio more known to a wider audience.

You need to go out more.
