I promise, there will be a new MTPng release soon. I've got
2 things I'm trying to do before then:
- Separate the OSS backend from the mixer core
- Write an ALSA native backend, since that's the drivers I run for "production" now.
I'm looking forward to seeing Gav's take on open source vs. traditional economics. It's a subject I've discussed a lot with some friends at work recently. We all more or less agree with the principles of Professor Eben Moglen's Anarchism Triumphant, but as well-paid toilers on traditional closed source software we're still wondering how people make money in the Brave New Economy. I know about indirect effects - Linus of course has his international man-of-mystery job as a direct result of some 386 operating system he wrote for free, and I know about things like CoSource, but doubts remain.
I guess that's why I'm a programmer not an economist ;-)
