It was only a couple of years that ago that people started taking Linux
seriously for graphics work, and it is becoming more and more prominent
especially in the motion picture post-production/visual FX industry...
open source/free software even, not just ports of commercial
applications. I can only hope that people will start taking Linux for
audio use seriously... especially for the starving musician who can;t
afford to shell out $500 for Finale or $700 or more for DAW software.
