I saw some forums which multiply the same infos ten times with ten times the same answers... then why writing again the stuff which got already an answer somewhere?! Moreover, linux + audio stuff doesn't involve a lot of people, so somehow separting them - us - is something which could be harmful to the audio-free-software-community!

But if this is true, then it could bring more people to audio-open-source-way-of-making-music! (isn't that a consumerist/productivist attitude?!)

Unfortunately, I'm gonna move to Berlin for a year or so in some days, and I 'won't have time to do something before one or two month... to the one who wish a forum, you'll have to wait a while if you are waiting for me. Then my knowlege in forums are really basic, but I'm gonna dig deeper. What do we miss then? I think we've got all we need...
