Hey, stop shrugging, this is the sort of feedback I was asking for.

I agree that's a real problem -- what I really want to do is promote 
the ideas and avoid over-promoting the applications and tools as 
finished products in a way that might just inspire disappointment.

On the other hand I do think something like JACK is worth making a 
fuss about.  Do you think that one misses the mark from a technical 
point of view?

And of course this is a trade show, I suspect there may be quite a lot 
of people marketing incomplete products one way or another.  Just so 
long as we are honestly promoting the genuine advantages that are 

I s'pose the intended message (from a practical point of view) is 
something like: if you spend a lot of time trying to get your system 
to do what you want anyway, then there may be good reasons for you to 
take an interest in Linux right now.  Otherwise, hey, there's 
potential! -- and at least we're working on a big variety of 
different stuff.

Ah, I dunno.  I had been thinking perhaps of making one of the other 
two be a list of links and the other be something aimed at 
developers, perhaps... not quite sure though.  Either way those two 
could probably balance up the salesiness of the first two by 
concentrating on community and the need for developers.
