Although I admire your determination for and devotion to FLOSS, I'm not
currently satisfied with the tools and especially instruments (real
instrument "recreations" or electronic).
I do not mean to offend the wonderful efforts done by the community
already: and I would like to point out that there are significant projects
that I use to make music.

But in the end of the day: I have to put more effort into getting the sound
I want using linux tools than Mac or Win. Although its very honourable to
only support FLOSS, I also want to make music that sounds *great* not just
*good*. If paying for instruments like Modartt's
then I'll do that. It sounds *wonderful*, not like a 90's MIDI Dance piano.

With that said, I'll get back to reading the rest of this thread :)
