I've tried to see this beauty 4 years and I was blinded by the beauty of this concept so I wasn't able to find a "flow" to work with Linux audio. There was no flow, there was no concept, just a collection of good ideas under the hood of JACK. OK the beauty is often behind the interface. But I was blind ;)

So I have the feeling you are declare the lack of concept to beauty, sorry, I'm blind.

A host application with plugins is not more or less then an "modular" environment for putting together the pieces into one interface. An good example is "Plogue Bidule" (for Mac and Windows) - as an modular host versus Logic, Ardour or Cubase as a classic daw oriented host. But together channel strips, audio processing, sequencing, recording, make routings.

In the commercial audio world I have the freedom to choose between different tools and concepts to find my unique workflow. Live supports my (and thousands of other musicians) workflow.

The limitations of Linux Audio (not at least starting with the RT kernel) urge me to be a frickler (nerd) with all this workarounds and bugs. it supports me in to know more about computer and software, but it didn't support my "stupid artist i want to make music and a video" workflow.

Windows is no option for me, because it is a tasteless copy of OSX and an unfriendly, sadistic OS. ;) But most of the Windows Live user reporting that Windows and Live are a good team.

In the world of semi professional audio/media production I have no choice, there is only one OS supporting all the need of a platform for a painless creative workflow, thats OS X, Linux mostly used as file server, render farm, recording slave or number cruncher, but with a Mac as master controller, My opinion and experience. But with a cool "Live" like app could be an option for many people.
