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.

I don't see why one could not take all the appropriate packages and a low-latency kernel and beat AGNULA
to the punch. In fact, the AGNULA team has another test base distro, DeMuDi (based on Debian) for those
who prefer debs over rpm. What might be really interesting would be if someone could get some of this software
running on the so-called hobby os's, such as Atheos or Cosmoe.
