I doubt it

How long have we been hearing about the so called benefits of Open Source.

Musicians don't care about being able to view the source code...we want to make music.

Linux is a great...if you're running Servers. Not so great for day to day Desktop use.

I'd try this if it was cheap but if I was billing out time to clients a proven DAW like Logic that actually works will beat out hype anytime.

Of course it's promising!

I didn't bring this to attention simply because it's open source. It promises to be an amazing workstation. And since the developers are actually accessable we can be assured that any bug fixes and features will be implemented quickly. From an audio perspective when you have a workstation that can be unencumbered by OS overhead and therefore can use the majority of the computers power to record, mix and playback high quality audio using 64 bit internal processing I think you have a real winner.

Great!

I hope to see it find success. The better the tools the better the music.

I'm not sure I'm buying the reliability aspect being that both XP and Apple now have OS's that are fairly reliable with proven foundations. Running a stable server is one thing but blasting Audio and Video through apps is quite another. Never been a better time to be a recording musician.
