Though I was just making a point that for a Linux audio newbie it is
currently much too difficult.

One thing that might help would be a list of mature apps & plugins that
will almost certainly work for the average user.
http://www.linux-sound.org/ doesn't really let people know which bits of
software are mature and reliable.

If people could get all of those packaged up for the major distros that
would be good as well. (I know some are already.)

Someone else mentioned the fragmentation - all the different widget
toolkits and languages used. I think that is a major barrier as well. If
people settled on just GTK+ and QT that would be a step forward.

Hey, I'm a GNOME devel! I don't really agree with you - the PulseAudio
developer spoke about cooperating/merging with JACK in a recent talk.

JACK isn't a general-purpose audio server though - it's not enough on
its own.

I'm optimistic. All the ingredients are there. It just needs to be
connected up.
