I sincerely doubt it. I've been a fairly major contributor to Linux
Audio for about half a decade now and I've posted less than a 100
messages to the mailing lists. People who have what it takes to get
things done do--people who just talk rarely accomplish anything. I'm
certainly not the reason why you or anyone else isn't buckling down
and making the world they want rather than complaining about the one
they've been handed. I would much prefer that *everyone* in the
community do something useful.

There is no master plan. There is no mission statement. There is only
a handful of crazy/brilliant people making the tools they need to do
the work they want to do. Only occasionally do these parameters
overlap. I don't see anything wrong with that.

The day that Linux is *the* mainstream platform for audio, if it ever
happens (don't hold your breath) will be just another day for me. I
couldn't care less. Everyone will be running some layer of shiny
proprietary crap on top of the framework we built anyway and it will
be just as irrelevant to me as Windows and OS X are now.

And furthermore, to set the record straight: Any developer of a
large/complex free-software project knows very well that it isn't
about being cheap either--time is money and this stuff take a *lot* of
time.
