Once, this forum was a place were Open Source enthusiasts meat each other and talk about open source music software, and how we could improve it. This is more and more gone, lost over the time. As more members we've here, as more the acceptance for Close Source and Commercial Ware steps in. Now, it's more a place were people meat each other to talk about proprietary software and publish news for companies, and believe, that are good news, the the Commercial World take over Linux, and, there seems to be no way to stop this thinking.
So, do what ever you want, the good times here been gone anyway, enjoy your KVR clone for Linux.
Maybe add a HTML Add frame, so you could make some money by yourself as well.
Just, it may be a good idea to edit the forum goals viewtopic.php?f=26&t=271
and remove the stance:

Understanding, learning, tinkering, optimizing, ..., which is made possible by open source software, is becoming more and more irrelevant.
As I perceive it, you want a finished product (LAW) which is like the known one (operating system/software/...), only better and simpler - it should do what I want: automatically.
Collected knowledge, among other things documentation, is increasingly badly talked about and considered outdated, no longer necessary, ... titled / looked at <EDIT>(the users of this forum, for example, or the GNU/Linux operating system, ...)</EDIT>. This may make new users insecure.
==> Which possibly has the consequence that all/much information, which one can find in the Internet, is no longer regarded as trustworthy.
The creative playing with the operating system, the joy of freedom and the sometimes accompanying tedious hacking (unfinished > inventing), the bringing in of different projects (inventing/creating something together), the new development of (audio) programs, ... is moving more and more into the background and one enjoys the freeware/purchase software which can now be used under GNU/Linux.
<EDIT@easily :~$ Offtopic>Powerlessness and unconsciousness. Both amplify each other. The total organization of society through big buisness and its ubiquitous technology has occupied world and imagination so completely that the thought that it could be different at all has become an almost hopeless effort. The diabolical picture of harmony blablabla ... .
