sorry, wrong. What about the gamers? What about keeping audio
and video in sync? What about the (still missing) Garage Band
clone on the KDE desktop?

All of these will need low latency, and especially Garage Band
is a product for Amateur use.

We're on free software, and there's no need (at least from a
technical POV) to deny desktop users the use of low latency
audio and video. We're at an important "point of no return":
We can make the right decision *now* or the audio and video
struggle will continue.

Best regards
