Linux I don't actually have a reason for trying to build a Linux kernel with the CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT patch set. There's no way I can even measure the impact of it. Still, I felt like having a "real-time" Linux box, and set out to make one. Little did I know how difficult it would be to even get started.

Not really, unless you define 'serious' as 'serious amateur', using Fruityloops or Garageband or whatever kids like these days. On the other hand, 'serious' might be 'serious work', in which case things like Csounds or Ardour and Linux might be what you want to use.

There are plenty of musicians and audio engineers out there who aren't technophobic imbeciles.

thats like saying dismiss MacOSX as it has iPhoto which is not as powerful as Photoshop.

Apple Logic Pro and Mainstage are pro sound applications.

Ardour was pretty unusable last time I tried it. And this is after using real DAW software like Ableton Live, Cubase, Reaper and Logic Pro. I'm sure it got better, but I'd choose Reaper over it any day of the week.

No, that's not dismissing anything.
