[News] Audio Professional Chooses GNU/Linux

- From Windows to Linux: a sound decision

,----[ Quote ]
| When Beasley first looked at Linux, it was 
| Mandrake (now Mandriva) with KDE 2.0 that he 
| picked up along with a PC magazine. "My 
| initial impression was that I could survive 
| in that environment," he said.
| But it took seven years before Beasley 
| decided to make the move. His Windows set-up 
| caused him constant headaches, with the 
| crashes of both applications and operating 
| system, and given the level of use he was 
| putting his machines to, he had to reinstall 
| at least twice a year. The software also 
| imposed severe limitations on creativity. All 
| this time, he kept track of developments in 
| audio software for Linux through the website 
| of Dave Phillips, whom he describes as "one 
| of the great movers and shakers in Linux 
| audio."

| Songsmith. The idea wasn't all that bad.
| Karaoke is fun. Making music on computers is
| fun. So why not, reasoned some Microsoft
| researchers, create a program that fills in
| audio accompaniment as users sing.
| Unfortunately, the $29.95 price and
| unbelievably mockable promotional video
| turned Songsmith into an Internet
| laughingstock. Later videos featuring
| Songsmith's accompaniment to the vocal tracks
| of songs like Queen's "We Will Rock You" and
| Van Halen's "Running With the Devil"
| highlighted the silliness.
