A smart article - as another 'electronic musician' (by your
definition) using Linux, I'm always interested in your thoughts and
essays on the topic. I agree that things can sometimes look a little
bleak for those hoping to create highly sequenced,
synth-and-effects-based music on Linux, but there are ways and means.
Incidentally, I wonder if you've ever used Renoise? Not F/OSS, but
runs perfectly well on Linux, and is in some respects sympathetic to
the F/OSS ideology (saves to a simple, open file format, for example).
Anyway, it's the strongest candidate I've found for making sequenced
electronic music per se in LInux. Right now I'm working towards a
workflow of using Renoise as a sequencer to drive simple synthdefs in
