win/mac hobbyist musicians squander countless studio hours trying to convert one anotheri2productions wrote: I've had a serious reversal in thinking about wanting to convert people from Windows to linux.

the music that could have been produced in those mega-thousands of forum sessions.
Well, maybe they are better at qwerty keys than midi keys
Success is largely achieved by discovering a dire need, and then meeting it beyond
all expectations. Hobbyists that are spending $500 and up per year on soft and hardware,
with new computers every-other-year, don't need linux. A guy dating a super model,
likely won't chat up the local Meter Maid.
So breaking music production down into basic elements, and communicating a particular linux
strength, to each one, might help. win/mac users are solution oriented, and don't
need gpl religious conversion, when its the drums that are lousy, the noisefloor
is unbearable, or the guitar tone is uninspiring.
The competition, is sponsored by successful business giants like Apple, Yamaha, Avid, Roland
so collaboration, with a plan, leadership, and faithful workers, is crucial. Things could go on
as they are, for years, with dozens of talented lone-wolf genius developers entrenched in their own
aftermath, wondering why, instead of celebrating success. For example, 6 of the top
100 developers, determine the need, co-purchase a large house, (yeah, the moving van scene!)
convert it into low overhead apartments, office, and studio, maintain day-jobs as needed, and develop a solid business plan, financial plan, team leadership, and project work assignments.
Everyone has skin in the game, something to win, or lose. But no longer alone,
and at the mercies.
