I'm a computer music newbie.For linux...I don't care to do
configure,make,make install from time to time.I'm not a computer scientist or
I've the impression things are going strong for sound in linux.A few years
ago I thought sound was not a linux-thing.Now,I get things to work and I
found out that a lot of promising projects are going on.Please,developpers go
on!!!! I can't be enough thankfull for their work.
Just push a bit more on the documentation side to make it easier for newbies
to test things.
