Thanks for the heads up Alex!

It would seem the publishers, or at least their web masters, are (ex)
Amigans as I got some guru meditations thrown at me when visiting that
page! :)

qtractor has a superb free digital manual and I know Ardour has both
some good online docs and some space dedicated to it in print form,
like Dave P's book for one and I've found at least one more on Amazon
that mentions Ardour, but otherwise it would seem LMMS is the first
open source DAW (DAW? Its just a simple sequencer with a few synths
built in- maybe not) to get a dedicated book released in print -

I'm not really surprised LMMS is the first to get its own book as I'm
on the LMMS list and there is a steady stream of volunteer devs
arriving to offer there services and I'm sure this only happens so
much compared to the other open source DAWs because it is both open
source and has a Windows port. Mixbus is already available for Windows
and Paul has stated A3 will be getting ported to Windows after the
stable Linux and OSX versions are released. Although I won't be using
Ardour under Windows, I can't wait for the Windows port to go mainline
because I'm certain more devs will start to contribute code to Ardour
when this happens as it will suddenly have a greatly increased user
base and I'm hoping this will lead to more VSTs getting ported and
some open sourced.
