i also started using pd the same way. my mac was dying and no fund for the max/msp update and thought i
will give linux/pd a try. and i don't think i will go back to max/msp again;)

i use pd mainly for live audio performance, also thinking of starting to make visuals with it too. i
am happy using it in performances. i mean, it depends a lot on how big is the patch. but in my example, i
had a p3 laptop running pd with the realtime option and sometime with jack and never had bad glitches,
unless i was been silly with it.
