Thats a strange news....

what could it mean ??? What do you think ???

ProTools for Linux ? I dont quite understand what the advantage could be for
ProTools. Since i am a ProTools User, i rather think of the benefits of  a
person like paul davis being part of digidesign..am i too naive ?

Would be niche to have a statement of Miller Puckette here ;-)
Under which conditions a program like puredata could slip into a
commercial/professional tool like ProTools ;-) I mean just think of the
development of digidesign within the last 10 years (i dont mean just the
capitalist-shitty part) but the technology and the change of a whole
industry. How could a system like Puredata look like in the hands of a big
company within te years ????

Any visions ?
