Especially because, as mentioned earlier, a typical Pro Tools box is
switched on to run PT and nothing else. Even Windows is quite stable
treated like that. No networking, viruses and other malware to worry

On the other side of the coin, that dedicated-to-one-job type of
application OUGHT to be a good target for Linux - kernel, drivers and
everything totally customisable in ways that Windows can never be. I
suspect that the first successful Linux DAW will be an (almost) embedded
system.  You buy a box, plug it in and Ardour (though the user might
never know it as that) appears on the screen...
