Actually I've got a fun fact.
When last year the Israeli parliament published the official requirements
for the new FOH system in the plenum, it stated that no Microsoft driven
console would be allowed:)
Now they are running the Lawo mc2 series...
I know this because I'm the sound engineer in the Israeli parliament:)
