Why-Linux at CCRMA

Linux is a real Unix, multiuser, multitasking and file sharing operating system and yes because Linux is a hacker's playground. Linux is a cross-platform operating system that runs on many computer models. Linux is free and many Linux applications are distributed in source making possible for you and others to modify or improve them. And because Linux is a good if not an ideal platform for developing your own software. Sound and music applications are maturing and provide an unprecedented flexibility only found years ago on the NeXT computers with the music kit. Linux offers a good choice of compilers for all the tastes around CCRMA. No other present popular operating system is more stable and reliable than Linux and it has a blazing fast performance.
