In principle you are right Carlo, positive thinking usually works, however, I
think you have a loose *earth connection*. MOTU have made a hard-headed
business decision not to support Linux AFAICT. Your "little bit of
propaganda" is likely to get dismissed as just that. Changing their minds
will take skillful arguments and positive action from users, like Yohann and
many others. I feel you underestimate MOTU, they need serious convincing if
they are ever to take Linux seriously and that will take weight of numbers.
