I believe this from the wikipedia on the subject describes Ardour's
functionality as a non-destructive editor:
"...non-destructive editing is a form of editing signals where the
original content is not modified in the course of editing - instead
the edits themselves are edited.
A pointer-based playlist ? effectively an edit decision list ? is
used to keep track of edits. Each time the edited audio or video
is played back or accessed, it is reconstructed from the original
source and the EDL. Although this process is more computationally
intensive than rendering each edit, changing the edits themselves
can be almost instantaneous, and it prevents further generation loss
as the audio or video is edited. ..."
While Audacity does have "undo" it does not operate in the manor
Both great tools, just different.
