...These are the programs
which would encourage users to install Linux and become part of the
community/ecosystem. Bitwig and other cross-platform apps are not. If
I'm on a Mac and I buy a Bitwig license, I have the choice of just
installing it and using it, or installing Ubuntu, configuring it,
fighting with drivers and packages, learning a new OS, then using
Bitwig. Of course I'm going to install it on the Mac.

To go back to the Nintendo vs Sega comparison, I was a Nintendo kid.
But I didn't tell my friend his Mega Drive (Genesis) sucked because of<=
the audio DSP chip, or the graphics raster engine, or the gamepad
ergonomics. His Mega Drive sucked because he couldn't play Super Mario<=
Kart or Starwing on it.
