Terry was kind enough to point out some very nice
looking softwares that some claim are on par with
music software for PC. Unfortunately they were Linux
based, and personally I'm unable to test them myself.
The whole discussion of "Free" is very debateable, and
somewhat off-topic, but my thoughts on it basically
are that nothing is truely "Free," and I won't attempt
to defend any ethical ideals with regard to free
content (probably because I don't take a strong
position on the topic one way or the other).
