Anyone making music here not using windows? It's a pretty awesome (free) alternative... and you don't have to worry about ableton or whoever chasing you down for a license if you hit it big. Also runs really well on older hardware (great for you frugal folk out there), I can get about ~10ms latency processing live recorded audio (contrasted with the same machine running asio4all under windows I was getting about 500ms latency processing the same recorded audio). It's crazy awesome if you are technically inclined.

There are a lot of folks in Asia, Europe and Africa using this stuff. Was turned on by a friend of mine who owns a record company in Hong Kong.
