2 advices, apparently north/south... But let the simple Linux user I am
try to understand :
On 1 side, Patrick tells about the good side of commercial messages,
issues, Ardour/Mixbus, aso... And the (-vvv) message is understandable,
in a free human
beings terms (as is mind, no beer here)
Robin, on the other side, said that strong :
"Personally, I'm averse against all forms of advertising :)"
And please don't forget to see he's smiling at the end
It appears we are at crossroads. Means, turn what was a UNIQUE human beings
FREE co-operation to BAU,or not ?
I have no right to decide, but, you pleased my advice Patrick, so like to say
that Robin is right, because of FLOSS principles; and you're right, because
of FLOSS scattering. But my voice goes to Robin, because I never had believed in
consumer society. Look, Debian is 80% of IT server, does it come from advertising ?
I really think it's better to achieve any goal on your abilities than on any
commercial bludgeoning (word from reverso)), and Linux Audio will do it, no
doubt : we better need SOUNDBANKS than commercials, and guess what : sounds comes
from people not companies here !!! (and you know that Patrick)
It'll probably take more time in the way promoted by Robin, but it will not be
founded on the false stuff commercials have habit us, and it's a BIG difference !!
Peace& Understanding to everyone on this list,
Fred (sorry for so-so english, hope it's understood)
Ah, si chaque grain de sable choisissait d'apporter sa goutte d'eau, hein ?
