the idea of bringing vst to linux is flawed like the idea of bringing

great! maybe your naive approach to these issues will actually rule out
all these well-thought arguments!

you seem to forget why linux exists in the first place. if we have to
give up the values that created this operating system in order to get
where we want, it isn't worth it. you are helping to create a second
windows. again, i did not move away from windows to have that golden
cage follow me! i hate debugging black boxes! i hate working with
binaries built from code i am not allowed to read or modify! i hate bug
reports from users using closed source plugins within my application (so
does the kernel team, check their bugzilla 'enter new bug' page for a
smile) this is a PRAGMATICAL question, not a question of good and evil,
damn it!
