Because you have used the term »usability« a lot, I'd like to
add that i also think that addressing usability could help a
lot, especially in the Linux audio world. It cannot solve all
issues, but a lot.

Unfortunately, usability needs time and resources. And I
understand well that a programmer of free software is more
interested in doing research and write new features than care
about usability issues.

I have held a talk about usability issues on Linux audio on
this years LAC:

http://sysexxer.sourceforge.net/files/lac2005-Linux-audio-usability.pdf

I often got very positive feedback when filing usability
feature requests for various projects, but sometimes I even
got told »The user should read the documentation« ;-) .

I agree with you that usability could reduce the amount of
documentation needed a lot.

Best regards
