I would estimate the number of really good sound programming 
environments available for linux to be around 20 (this is _the area_ where 
linux really shines compared to other platformes). So, it makes more 
sence to have discussions about topics such as ambisonic audio and things 
like that on this list rather than one of the sound programming 
environment lists.
