Ok, let me take it from another angle: I'd much prefer FLOSS, if that's
not possible then a linux native commercial solution. So why am I
considering reaper through wine? Because it offers me something that I
found nowhere else.

1) I need something that'll work as a "traditional DAW" (real musicians
generating audio tracks) *and* something to work with electronic music.
Could be two different programs, would be nice if it was one.

2) I need something that I can rely on. Something that opens up just
like I left it *every time*.

3) Although I find it attractive, the
linux-way-of-small-tools-handling-a-small-part-of-a-larger-job doesn't
really seem practical in audio *to me*. I prefer the old-fashion model
of a host for different reasons: Better/tighter integration, one
project-file (or project folder) and simpler/more safe upgrade path.

4) I need something that's well rounded (like renoise), but also allows
me to experiment, even go cracy some times.

As for reaper, I strongly encourage everyone here that hasn't tried it
yet, to spend a few days in it. You might like it, you might hate it,
but you'll sure have broadened your perspective!

You get seamless timestretch (add marker and move it around to stretch),
most commonly used effects included, recording in any format I ever
heard of, an app taht is very light on the CPU and extremely
configurable. And I just discovered JS, reapers native plugin format;
write and debug your own plugins right from within reaper, took me bout
an hour to write something that emulates renoise B0 (reverse playback)
effect. And as a bonus, you get to choose from *alot* of free and (I'm
sorry to say) pretty good vsts. Ever tried synth1? I hadn't, but wow,
what an awesome synth!

So as I said, I'd love to use FLOSS, I'd even be more than happy to
lower my standards quite a bit. But the comparison is just not fair, at
least from where I sit. Note that I haven't settled on reaper just yet
(I did buy a license, though), and even if I do, I still consider myself
a linux-audio-user.

Did that answer your question?
