But this setback won't stop him from his goal to connect every person he can find on the face of the earth to get online. He said, "Fortunately, we have developed other technologies like Aquila that will connect people as well. We remain committed to our mission of connecting everyone, and we will keep working until everyone has the opportunities this satellite would have provided.”
Translation, “But this setback won't stop him from his goal to connect every person he can find on the face of the earth to Facebook. He said, "Fortunately, we have developed other technologies like Aquila that will collect people as well. We remain committed to our mission of assimilating everyone, and we will keep working until everyone provides their personal data to us for free, so that we can continue to monetize it for our proprietary business growth, since our product is humans.
Facebook reminds me of that Twilight episode “To Serve Man” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
Back to the audio interface question, amongst the major things we have here is that Jack/Alsa are fine for desktops with Realtek chipsets, but when you're dealing with thousand dollar interfaces that can record sixteen channels of audio in real-time with 1ms latency, Jack and Alsa just don't cut it.
Yeah, this. I have and do use Reaper, it's great. It's been a while but last time I tried to record with Linux the audio interface support just wasn't there. I had a M-Audio Delta 1010, which was a good consumer+ level interface at the time (PCI) but nothing in that league even was supported on linux. It sounds like that hasn't changed much, even now with high quality usb audio interfaces. It's a bummer but I guess the demand really isn't there...
What changes would you want to see in it in the next five years?
Still waiting for the year of the desktop. A viable alternative to osx (and ms) for multimedia work, specifically, professional level audio engineering work.
It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.
