Actually, if you look around the 'net, you might be surprised at the
cool MM stuff for *NIX boxes - check out SourceForge (hehehe, do a
search for Crystal Space.. not audio related as such, but REAL cool
for graphics and animation!).
That is the one thing though... until mainstreamers start porting their
wares to Linux, you either have to look real hard, or start writing
code. Me? I like writing code, so it works for me. As of late, I have
been writing a lot of stuff in Python; when you dont need the bleeding
edge speed, it is MUCH faster and easier (especially for GUIs). Easy
to learn too ;-)
