[LAU] DAWs and licensing Was: Symphony of love illusive

Don't forget FLOSS and proprietary are not mutually exclusive. I use the 
wonderful Harrison Mixbus 32C which is the best analog-modelled digital 
mixing interface built on the solid Ardour base. They share at least one 
developer and Harrison flows some financial support back to Ardour 
afaik. Beautiful synergy!

Re the upgrade incompatibility issue, proprietary software doesn't have 
that to itself. Mixbus 5 had some features which were changed enough to 
cause problems if you loaded the sessions in Mixbus 6 and the 
corresponding Ardour versions were the same (thinking of the inline 
sidechain for one). But it's possible and even encouraged to keep as 
many versions as you like installed at once.

Cheers, Roger
