Yeah - true again. Saying goodbye to their VST-plugins is the thing
experienced Win/Mac-users abhor the most. So it would help to draw
people to Linux if they could run their DLLs whithout hassle.
Still I think that too much attention and efforts are focussed towards
making VST-DLLs run in Linux and too little towards free, native solutions.

Many that work with Linux have only a brief look at LADSPA-plugins and
apps like AMS or Specimen - they test it for 2-3h then they say "OK so
what - I want my NI-DLLs back." It is true, that LADSPA does not have
the same powers in store as the VST-world but not only the plugins that
are there are used as they could be used. It is quite funny to see
someone who writes software in a modular system and does not understand,
that 5-6 simple LADSPA-plugins can be used as modules to build something
new, that is powerful and flexible.
So one might call me a zelot - I am with Linux because it is GNU. And I
dislike to have interactive applications running, that do not fit into
the free ecosystem of GNU/Linux. So I think solutions like LV2 need much
more attention then they get now.
sorry Paul for sending this twice - mixed up the adresses :-)
