What I am getting at is that if you install ardour using a root account but=
the version you are installing is maliciously compromised then your system=
canbecome pwned.
I doubt this since if I wanted to own a few systems then I would not leave =
thehack evident but Linux is very close to some large exploits due to the n=
atureof distributed and weakly protected code.
