I saw an article on commercial, non-FOSS software for Linux recently and
the odd thing was that the majority of the apps listed were music related -
indeed it seems Linux audio has a relative 'glut' of commercial offerings
compared to other types of app so I can only presume JACK's fame and usage
is on the rise but the Linux desktop shall remain the domain of the
computing enthusiast/ professional. I'm happy with that and I'd expect
everyone else here has grown to accept that too - there are just too
many obstacles between its acceptance for it to be any other way and the
eeePC's crappy distro and massive return rate didn't do Linux on the
desktop any favours did it?

If I stick to the music related stuff, wich is a very small world in =
numbers
when we talk IT, this is some of the one that has started doing music softw=
are
for Linux the last years:

=A0Invada, LinuxDsp, Loomer, Indamixx, Pianoteq, Guitar Pro,
=A0Transcribe!, MuSing, energyXT, Renoise, UltraMixer and
=A0TrueFire (video player for guitar training)There is also soon to be Bitwig and I suppose we could also count =
4front's OSS too=A0

Most of this vendors/products was not in the Linux Music lanscape until
recently. For me that has been using Linux sice the mid 90's, this is a=
huge
improvements, and i believe that this list will expand a lot more the upcom=
ing
years.
