We need an adjective that conveys all these positive feelings. It's all about 
words. This way, people can put their works under a collective name. But in 
my opinion, the "coolness" doesn't stay in the concept that it's free (to 
download? to share? where's the news? say this to an eMuler...). The coolest 
thing to communicate (and since this is a Linux Audio User I think you would 
all agree), is that music has been made with Linux, which is new, fresh, 
powerful, geeky, and so on. And, following the spirit of Linux, we share our 
music with the fresh and powerful Ogg, and with a fresh and powerful license.
Linux is getting to the point of being usable out of the box, so it won't be 
any more a black art to make it work properly with realtime, jack etc.
We need a cool flag behind which marching!:)


Ok, that's enough!:)
