I'm glad... personally I’m so fed up with (parts of) the Linux community spending huge amounts of hours reinventing desktops and quibbling about stupid aesthetic and non issue usability issues.

Put more resources into Ardour, Inkscape and Cinelerra and polish the hell out of the applications.

Instead of Ardour for Audio I would point you in the direction of Reaper which has Linux native development happening as well.

reaper.fm

Also runs OS-X and Win and has more of a chance of being a polished product than anything I can see happening with Linux only Audio Production solutions.

So, it's generally more of an issue with third party desktops, than specifically Linux itself.

Don't be a tool. You know full well that "Linux" in this case (like almost every other case) refers to the whole distribution, plus the community surrounding it.

What's with you modders? You mod the OP up to 11 because he's not happy with multimedia apps, and this guy down to -1 for simplifying the discussion? You ought to be responding to these posts if you feel so strongly about it instead of just clicking that button.

> Put more resources into [...] Cinelerra
If we try Kdenlive, we can see were I would put more resources. For my uses, it does the work.
