pretty much everythign works great. at least, all of jack and related frontends like qjackctl/patchage, as do just about all ladspa/dssi synths/plugs and hosts/sequencers like om/seq24 and mhwaveedit runs great (rezound and sweep tend to crash, and ardour tended to randomly crash now and then but that was a few alphas ago) and pd is broken..SC seems broken but on all linuxes not just amd64, and Chuck works...
