Submission + - Meyer Sound on Audio Development with Linux (

pinkj writes: Rarely do you hear about audio development with Linux or audio developers joining the Linux Foundation. It was interesting to read this article on Meyer Sound's input in Mix Magazine on why they prefer using Linux to develop their audio software. They used Linux to develop "the D-Mitri digital audio platform and Galileo loudspeaker-management system":

"'I started using Linux in 1994, right after college,' says Perrin Meyer. 'At the time, Sun or HP Unix workstations cost about $100,000, and after I graduated, I no longer had access to Columbia’s computers. So [by] using my own computer with Linux, I was able to keep the same advanced programming environment I had in school.'"
