I also wanted to follow up on what I just said with audio software on 
Linux tends to just get better. I don't think enough credit is given to 
already existing software. Yoshimi for instance is always super 
impressive to see all the new features, bug fixes, and refinements. 
Ardour and Qjackctl surprises me too. For instance, the new Recording 
tab in Ardour is really useful.

One last project that impresses me is kdenlive. Kdenlive is always 
getting better and more feature-rich. I feel confident in my ability to 
make videos on Linux.

Thanks for reading my rant,

Brandon Hale
