I wanna make sure I'm using the right stuff...
The point of this thread is that now reaper is also a native linux program. No more wine. It won't run windows binaries, at least not without some hacky VST bridge stuff and that may not even be possible (I never touch the stuff). Its just another option that could possibly help people who have considered using linux for audio to make the switch. Its just like bitwig supporting linux, another commercial player that is supporting our OS. As more companies do so I suspect it will draw the attention of plugin devs. Whether this will generate more open source stuff, we could probably argue all day about it. In fact almost everything I wrote is kinda assuming... Still, I see it as a positive event even though I'm personally not very interested. It is competition for Ardour and Qtractor but loses in the licence category
thanx ssj71... Reaper is quite popular so like you said, devs of windozes VSTs, the free ones at least may go open source..
