I think, that installation and configuration topics should go elsewhere.
Sometimes they can not be avoided, as using an application often means
configuring it, so that it finally works like intended, but generally I
like the idea of focusing on *using* one or more *applications* in the
QuickToots, as that's something, that hasn't been there before, if you
don't count the original "toots" by R. Boulanger and all the great
submissions to the Csound Magazine. I like the QuickToots as something like
a Linux equivalent to Csound Magazine ^_^
Esp. a topic like "how to get sound out of card X" and even "how to get
lower latency" is IMO better placed somewhere else. I think, Patrick's
suggestion of the Linux Audio User Guide is quite good. Also there is the
Linux Audio Quality Howto, that deals with getting the most out of your
card or out of your box.
Now one should only hope, that the QuickToots don't run out of
applications to feature...
