Even tho the approach is not 'out there' (as it seems quite a bit of
linux programs use this client / server approach) I have the feeling
it's the kind of details that could pull off users from adopting linux
as a music platform. If you plan on trying a synth, you'd want to see
it's face right ? It's kind of the same as the jackd/jackstart/qjackctl
issue. When I tryed it first, I got really confused by all of them.
Actually, I still didn't get the jackstart/jackd difference, my eee
seems to need jackstart, my ubuntu install doesn't even have one.
In my views, a single executable would be a lot better, and if anybody
wants to run it without a GUI, give them a command-line option. Sure
that will mean your main executable will depend on user interface libs
but i don't see anybody wanting to run the synth without wanting to
tweak it at some point so the libs will be needed anyway....
my 2 cents :)
