Hello Ralf!
I don't exactly get the finer points of your argument. You may have gone a
little astray in your passion.
But why should Linux not have fancy GUIs? I can't use a lot of them right
now, but I could do more, if I only got my arse of the ground and persevered
in my efforts to set up GNOME and Orca. Fancy is nice. I get "fancy" in other
ways and I do like it. Certainly it's nice when apps respect some global
settings of yours,but especially in our field, sometimes it's just not on. We
are - at the heart - a lot about creativity and user interfaces do shape our
workflows and methods. If you want something, that lets you absolutely have
your way, then I suppose you'll be back with Csound and high-level audio
programming libraries.
Granted there are applications, that are fancy and flexible, but it's a hell
of a lot to program and it can't apply to everything. and then of course, we
always have ideas, when we start something. We - as musicians - have ideas
about the kind of music we make and the programmers have ideas about the
interfaces they make. In a way that too is a form of art.
As a final remark: I do like applications, that adhere to standards and if
possible respect global settings. Because in a case like mine - and others -,
that too might mean, taht such settings are paramount to making a software
accessible/usable. But Linux - as any other OS - is meant to be used and thus
has to advertise and move with the times, not only in background technology.
And that is as it should be.
Warm regards
Julien
