I don't care about the abilities that Linux audio apps might have or no=
t
have, but about a quality level for Linux. That something is a gift
doesn't mean there is no demand on e.g. privacy. If somebody makes
something public, even for free as in beer, there are still rules, laws
to take into account. If a coder does not want to take care about rules
and laws, the coder better don't release his software. _Again_ I'm =

talking about the abilities of Linux audio apps, I'm thinking of data
protection.

Dialog is needed if quality should raise, the other way, no dialog and

want to point out, that the argument that something is free as in beer,
doesn't mean that there are no quality standards.

I programmed audio software myself ages ago and when I gave it away for

Something that is for free still shouldn't be dangerous crap.
