+ - Linux Pro Audio Getting Mainstream Attention 2

Submitted by northernalbertapolic
northernalbertapolic writes: Studio 13.37, the ultra-low-latency super-studio, received mainstream attention this month with a mention in the professional publication "Recording" magazine. With a realtime kernel, Ardour 3, and the ability to load itself entirely into RAM (OS and all), has Linux finally eclipsed Mac in the area of pro audio work?

The biggest concern people have is with the thimerosol in the vaccines, which is 50% mercury. They banned thimerosol from contact lens solutions and other products - isn't there some other preservative they could put in vaccines? You have to admit, it's a bit disconcerting to be injecting your newborn with mercury.

Comment: Apple's "inventions" (Score -1) 287

All Apple really did was take a bunch of already-existing technologies (the touch screen, phone and computer parts), and put them together in a small package. How's this any different than "inventing" the hamburger, and why aren't we paying licensing fees every time we eat a Big Mac? I know, I know, don't give them any ideas...

Because it allows "the majority" to filter out ideas they don't agree with. They're not rating the quality of the posts, just whether it matches their tastes. People say they like GNOME 3, and their comments don't appear, but rant about why you don't and your post shows on the page, it's stupid.

I know. I get the feeling there are a lot of old fogeys that frequent this site who have somehow become very closed-minded and picky over the years - you know the type, the ones that say "I only use vim" and that sort of thing. And then there are the loudmouth hateful youngsters. So I dunno.

I personally find GNOME 3 very slick and modern, and have grown to love it. Seriously, try it with Cairo Dock-gl, you won't miss anything about GNOME 2. If I were the developers, I'd be angry. They built something awesome, even did it for free. And then there's all these nasty little ingrates on Slashdot, typing nasty little comments, whining and complaining. STFU!

If builders built buildings the way programmers wrote programs, then the first woodpecker to come along would destroy civilization.
