There was a discussion recently on andraudio regarding Linux audio and the =
Google platform. The going response was that Linux is Linux=2C Android is b=
lahblah blah. In short=2C the teams felt that never the twain should meet.
Personally I found that not just a bit black and white=2C but worse that Li=
nuxaudio which has lived a life in a corner of a far of field was missing o=
ut on the chance to ride on the crest of a wave that android is continuing =
to bring home.
There is plenty to lament in what Android brings to audio but at the sameti=
me it has an immensity to offer to the audio isolate that is Linux audio. I=
t is a shame that LAD/LAU has not jumped on the Andriod bandwagon=2C or eve=
n bothered to hi-jack it for their own needs. This is probably the only cha=
ncethat any kind of Linux audio can become mainstream.
I think Paul has a perspective on this although he has not expressed an opi=
nion.My personal feeling is that Linux audio is a dynamic=2C open and very =
capableenvironment but that it might never break out into mainstream withou=
t embracing a major platform such as Android now is. There are ~500=2C000 s=
ystemsbeing sparked up every day=2C and it is almost greenfield for audio d=
evelopment.
Kind regards=2C nick. =
