This is exactly the problem, and it is very fundamental.

Developers can't control the user experience of an open source software package. Full stop. It is not possible. The users, and the distributions, have a lot more say in it.

Unless you close the source, users on Linux *WILL* have varying uncontrollable levels of user experience-- it's the price of openness.

I see that Ardour has a good following of users in the Mac world, where this kind of tight control of the user experience is rampant and was part of Steve Jobs's original closed-system vision in the early 1980s, and perhaps that kind of philosophy is important when dealing with that market. But that attitude doesn't fit in Linux land, although shipping a binary distro-independent package might get somewhere close, who knows.
