It's an ongoing discussion. So is Linux Kernel development. Are you
implying that kernel development is stalled too?

Did anyone pay you for your time? How much income are you relinquishing by

Speak for yourself. As a community Linux Audio has been competing for the
past 15-20 years.

You have a very closed view of the community if you think that a few
people making some music in their spare time represents the Linux Audio

We already have that. The number of people releasing work done with Linux
Multimedia tools is constantly expanding. Almost all major motion pictures
are made with Linux these days. I've heard music on the BBC that was made
with Linux Audio tools. We have several audio and multimedia companies
that are very publicly making money from Linux software and hardware
running the Linux platform.

The questions I have received are
- q. What are the physical limitations ? a. very few.
- q. Does it support VST ? a. yes.
- q. What are Pauls rates for custom work and is he available ? a. I'll
ask him, he's generally a very responsive :-)
- q. Is Ardour the right solution for our goal? a. Maybe, what is it you
are tying to achieve?

Most likely they got bribed more money not to release their drivers and
support Linux than they expected to received from sales. Of course this
just works in RME's favour so MOTU loose out in the long run by looking
like dicks to the global Linux Community which numbers in the millions and
loosing customers to RME as everyone knows that RME products are high
quality and tend to work very well on Linux.
They also loose out on the association with Linux as a high end solution
which may not matter to their core market but definitely matters to the
