  • While at O'Reilly, I got to play with a BeBox. I enjoyed watching the CPU LED monitors. Since I do a lot of hard drive recording, I'm particularly sad that BeOS didn't catch on. No one wanted to write apps for it. I'm one of those 'Lino-nuts' and I'm public confess my profound disappointment at the developement speed of multimedia on Linux.

    For typical desktop things I find Linux readily usable. Unforuntately for more specialized desktop apps like audio/MIDI recording, Linux isn't even where MacOS X let alone Win32.

    Multimedia infrastructure isn't easy to build and it's not something hackers are likely to find in old AT&T Unix source. Open Source is very good at tackling the lowing hanging fruit of OS features. The challenge remains for Open Source to lead the way into the hard stuff (that is, stuff that really isn't that much fun to work on).
