@Folderol:

"While it is nice to have lots of different apps, plugins, whatever, I
think you
find most musicians quickly settle on a very small range which they get to
know
extremely well."

This is true. However, before you settle, you do need to have a choice. And
there is
very little right now.

@Dan:

"He made a number of valid points but I have to agree it was a bit overly
negative. Linux audio has come a long way in the last few years- if still
trailing some way behind commercial offerings in some areas but its
unrealistic to expect otherwise when the big boys have large teams working
full time on development plus some of the apps (Cubase etc.) effectively
pre-date Linux back to the 80's."

You point out the reason why things are as they are. I did not speak about
the reasons, I tried to capture how I see the state of things, independent
of the reasons. Noting that Linux has come a long way and that we cannot
expect hobbyists to do as well as professionals has nothing to do with a
completely independent statement that Linux has few plugins compared not
even to Windows but to some musicians' needs. ;)

I think sometimes it is useful to take such perhaps a slightly negative
look. As long as it is not desperate, this kind of reflection can be useful
to always be realistic about one's achievements or about state of things.

Also, I have a hidden hope that someone disproves my view and shows that in
reality everything is not so bad ;)
