Um agreed, but could we make it 'just work' the way we know Linux could,
rather than the way Mac and Windows do it?-)
I don't really follow the desktop argument here anyway. I can't afford a Mac
and prefer not to use Windows even if it does lose me potential work. Between
GNOME-2.8 and openbox3, I'm quite happy desktop-wise.
A common audio layer is what I as a user thought ALSA was supposed to be. JACK
is a great part of Linux working the way we know it could. Here I don't want
to even have to know about the multiplicity of different systems, I want one
that works with everything and makes it easy to port other useful opensource
apps from other places (like getting OpenMusic, which uses portaudio, to work
I'm running AGNULA/DeMuDi, where most of the ALSA/JACK apps do, in fact 'just
work' (if only just in a couple of cases). All the work that has gone into
making it that way is very much appreciated.
