i think it's perfectly ok not use linux for audio. why lie to ourselves
by saying we're already there ?
there *are* creativity stoppers in linux. if it does not fit your style
of working, look for something else.
when i talk to people about linux audio, i always ask them how they like
to work and whether they like to futz with computers. depending on that,
i recommend linux or tell them to look elsewhere.
for me, linux is the way to go. and if things go on like they do now, it
may be for you real soon. :)
if it's about getting a job done, the only option can be windows or
macos depending on the type of job. but if it *can* be done in linux,
you will get so much extra fun out of it that overcoming the hurdles is
worth it. the open source community are just so much cooler to hang out
with than the microsoft hotline :)

these stones are put there by hardware vendors, not by "linux".
it's inevitable that users understand that.
