Hi all,

	The official statement is that there will be no support for RME from
me.  In other words I will buy no hardware or software from RME because
it is impossible for me to share my hard earned money with a company
that is unwilling to support my operating system of choice.  But I'll
certainly share my money with other companies.  Any companies listening
out there?

Regards
Jan Depner
