Interesting, what you say!
Yes, I know about VST on Linux, but my aim of switching to Linux was to use
free technology, not switch an OS and then get back to emulating Windows
But my question is not to put Windows down or anything, but just to
understand the general situation.

Regarding to commercial software you are mistaken. Keep in mind that coders=
for commercial software get paid, hence they've got the resources, tim=

of filter and similar algorithms. Virtual Orchestras aren't just sample=
players, there is code that emulates a lot more, it's comparable to ha=
rdware such as the Yamaha Clavinova for piano sounds, it's not only gen=
erating a sound and using some filters etc., but a lot of development for v=
ery special algorithms.
And because Windows has got more users, that means coders too, as Linux has=
got, there's also more shareware.
Do you know that you can use VSTs on Linux too?
