} You're not joking about the ProTools snobs.

 I'm not calling them snobs. The limited exposure I have to protools {free on
'98 and the stuff that comes with Avid} has all been really good. It's an
excellent product as far as I can tell. I'm just talking about the closed minded
attitude that folk tend to get... Their refusal to entertain other ideas {Like
the response you get when you mention linux as a valid platform for multimedia}

{I do think it's a damned good program} and it wouldn't go anywhere simply
because it's not Cubase or whatever happens to be the "best" at any particular

illness... {At least it seems that way to me most of the time.}

 Like a lot of excellent programs out there it won't go anywhere near as far as
it deserves to... I'm still surprised that Live has gotten as far as it has. :}
I sort of wonder how Melodyne is doing as far as sales go. It strikes me as
massively strange that Squeak and Visual Works aren't on every desktop in
America. {...Maybe not "every" desktop.} I still wonder why AmiPro just fizzled
and why Aldus had to fold. {We won't even mention Corel}

editing in dos in the early '9os} and why VIPs doesn't ship with the gimp
package... :}}
