> He wants to be able to start an audio app and hear it's
Furthermore, a common interface for audio programmers (»Make
your application a jack client«) would be great. Normal
applications shouldn't access an audio device exclusively.
KDE and Gnome will always have an underlaying soundserver. at
least for portability issues. That's absolutely OK, as long
that their servers talk - maybe - to jack instead of grabbing
the device exclusively.
Best regards & thanks for all thoughts
