I believe in Linux audio.

For 420b, I've started off by writing a DSSI architecture file for
the Faust programming language.  This will enable people to compile
MIDI-controllable instruments which are written in Faust for Linux
hosts (some recent work at CCRMA by Romain Michon and Julius Smith has
resulted in some exciting instruments coming down the pipeline).  I
still need to do a bit of polishing but hopefully I can submit it to
the Faust authors and have it incorporated into the release

Linux as a desktop OS and audio production environment still hasn't
seen the kind of wide-spread adoption that systems based on OSX or
Windows have seen.

But I think it's very usable as an audio platform thanks to the hard
work of many people who also believe in Linux audio.  I have wanted to
contribute to an open-source project for a long time, and I think that
I'm close to doing so!
