My dear James,
Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to live a simple black &
white life, where there's only strictly good and strictly evil, where
software can be either proprietary of free, and where people you
disagree with are either ignorant cusses or trolls. Thank you for a
fantastic insight and an amazing experience :)
Now that you've hopefully done getting personal on people, do you
think you could find yourself stretching your attention towards the
topic? Which is, when it comes right down to it, fear.
The whole issue arises from fear that we as community have failed to
produce competitive software, otherwise nobody would bother even
checking out Bitwig, let alone discussing it.
The question is what we are going to do about this fear.
What would _you_ do, James? Would you suppress it with political
statements or would you try to contribute and make more usable
software? Or produce really well composed, recorded, mixed and
mastered music? Write impressive tutorials maybe? Anything to make
just about everyone say "Hey, this free software thing's worth
