sure, but this is not relevant to your question: "What makes the Audio
industry so special that it can ignore the direction that other industries
are moving?"

the problem is that the question is ill-formed. there is no single
direction that other industries are moving in. various companies clearly
think that the tablet has an important role to play in future audio
technology. are they wrong? that question is also ill-formed. you asked
your question no doubt because you perceive many different industries
"adopting" linux in various ways. this is just one of many directions that
many different industries are moving, and they are not all moving in all of
them. the audio tech industry, like the rest, will pick and choose.
"adoption of linux" is not written in stone, or even on paper, no more than
"adoption of iOS tablets" is.
