Linux Audio has been giving me tools for my passion, art and daily  
work for more than the last decade. I am really thankful for that,  

My impression of LAU and LAD is that of an honest, argumentative and  
compassionate community going for the long haul. It may not always  
sound that way. But jazz aint dead either.

And ceterum censeo: my dream of incorporating the tools and traditions  
of the free software community into the workflow of recording artists  
who are geographically separated, is still behind the hill.

That's just great, because I think a universal approach to managing  
sessions is on the horizon. I am pretty sure that this will bring a  
great number of fresh users to linux audio.

Let's keep our discussions at the best we can. There are people out  
there who want to feel welcome.
