Hey guys,=A0to drop my 2 cents into the jar of discussion, I person=
ally see more proprietary apps arriving, but see it in a more positive ligh=
t.First of all, as a libertarian anarchist, I do believe that people mi=
ght choose to write proprietary software and to choose proprietary

software. Proprietary software is such a problem only and only because mode=
rn computing world basically forces it on people.If we have some pr=
oprietary apps arriving to the fundamentally free platform which is GNU/Lin=
ux, this will be a choice situation.

Yes, proprietary apps may have more features, but not necessarily. Yes, if =
Adobe starts doing Photoshop for Linux, it is possibleGIMP will not be =
as prominent on Linux.on the other han=
d, if these proprietary apps bring more people to linux, some of these peop=
le will discover the other 'true linux' apps that are available and=
might start to use these too

you win some, you loose some=A0But those will now be choices. And it is obvious from what I s=
ee Rui doing with Qtractor that it stands on its own. Bitwig does not

necessarily exclude Qtractor or Ardour, not to mention that more people on =
Linux Audio might interest them in JACK and all thestuff. Routing low-l=
atency audio will always have a strong appeal.And we'll also se=
e how "piracy" works on Linux. Remember, there is no registry her=
e. And with the amount of hacking talent you might

very quickly see that proprietary software developers either will have to a=
bandon GNU/Linux or else offer something that is reallyappealing and no=
t just copy if files for lots of money.
