I think we're leaving the "how linux audio could be more user friendly"
topic in favor of the "how linux could be more user friendly" - which
is not bad, just saying.
I allready stated more or less this, but I'd like to say it again, in
other words. If I wanted a user friendly OS, I wouldn't be using linux,
but probably OSX. There's a monetary cost for that, but OTOH linux and
more in general open source software involves a larger "time" cost,
time spent reading documentation etc. There's a tradeoff there.
I think many people here, like me, prefer to invest time in open source
software rather than money AND time (though less) in closed source
The way I feel is that we really shouln't invest too much time and
energy with users who won't learn how to do such an easy thing as using
a terminal (just google "linux using terminal").
What does the community gain in having such people use linux?
