Two is fine, but I really miss the third sometimes. Btw, just yesterday I
had to rent what was going to be the new third display, because a friend
got his second monitor burn too, after his first one broke some months
ago... So, it could be worse ;-)
I really prefer Patchage over QjackCtl's patchbay (actually, I don't even
use QjackCtl anymore) because it allows you to have everything on one
viewport, Jack audio, and both ALSA and Jack midi, and place everything
where you need, allowing you a better graphical organization of the
patchbay. When you have projects with more than 30-40 ports, that could be
a mess in QjackCtl.

Well, does programming count? :-)

I know, I don't like that too, and I usually do that for work messaging or
when my answer is clear enough without the need of citing the original
Beyond that, I still love old-style bottom posting.
