Re: Paul Davis at LAC 2017

There are a lot of things to discuss other than Apple vs Windows vs Linux and privacy :? - the Linux audio stack - jack1 & jack2 - plugin formats - the alarming low number of top class devs (kudos to them!) - the small and disparate community Moving on to your second bullet point...I am interested ...

Re: Paul Davis at LAC 2017

Imagine having a hammer. And having it send how many nails you hammered in. At which time and what day of the week. How much force was applied. The speed of the hit. Which hand you used. Later you find a switch. And you find a manual stating you can flip it so it won't send that info. That would be...

Re: Paul Davis at LAC 2017

I have to laugh at the thought that unchecking some boxes will disable the tracking... These options are sometimes reverted after an update, and since you can't see the code there's no way to reliably know what it's saving and sending at a later date. There was a major update recently pushed to Win...

Arch wiki :p
No doubt the Arch Wiki is an amazing resource for Linux users. I would probably make some YouTube tutorials before I would edit it because the Wiki seems to be in capable hands as it stands.

Re: Paul Davis at LAC 2017

Yes, if you KNOW that these boxes exist, if you KNOW that otherwise you will be spyed on, if you KNOW where to find this boxes. When Win 10 came out Joe User didn't know a shit about all that and those boxes were well hidden from him. It took experts looking at their router traffic to find out that...

Re: Ardour 5

I would still hold that in the quest for a stable or functional environment, it's a legitimate approach to move back to something that worked, or at least to prefer to deal with known issues instead of surprise issues, and consciously forgo progress until you yourself decide that you're ready for i...

Thanks to you both for your work on this. Good quality, native Linux plugins are not something to take for granted.

Re: Ardour 5

I am still relatively grateful that ardour exists at all, but if I look at it soberly, its position today seems to be beta testing for mixbus, with the somewhat grotesque implication that the only executable version of ardour that its makers would give you to download for free no strings attached, ...

Re: Ardour 5

I don't think the Linux kernel's development process is analogous to Ardour's. The kernel is a base component of the operating system that interfaces software and hardware. Ardour is an application. The kernel has hundreds of contributors whereas Ardour has only two main authors, if I am not mistake...

Re: petition at change.org
