It might make Ardour in general more widely used, which would then give 
users a free choice of platform - that can only be a good thing.

SSL describe Ardour in their press release as cross-platform, so my 
guess is they are happiest when not tied to a single platform. At least 
two competing console manufacturers (Harrison and Allen & Heath) have 
already launched Linux-based products.

On the other hand, a Mackie representative claimed to me that the 
Digital X-bus runs embedded Windows. I'm sceptical about that, because 
the GUI doesn't look anything like Windows at all, but then I've never 
seen one boot up, only running.
