Hi Patrick,

> I thought it might be

I've been very busy with the 64 Studio project, and we've put out a
couple of alpha releases already. We're planning to release a stable
version next year. http://64studio.com/

> Some of you may remember that I started a company called Boost

There's certainly room for improvement over the ubiquitous Apple
laptops that gigging musicians use. I saw Soulwax playing 'live'
recently, and they had an audible buffer under-run when switching
between songs. Plus the fact that laptops aren't really pro-grade
hardware in terms of reliability or repairability - they're more like
consumer electronics.

Have you seen the Rackable half-depth servers?

http://www.rackable.com/products/c1000.htm

They take dual Opterons and they look like the right size to fit in a
musician's rack. Now if there was a similar machine which was
pre-installed with 64 Studio, that would be a kick-ass system... :-)

Cheers!

Daniel
