Qsampler and Ubuntu Studio
I totally understand your position. You use a software a lot and would
like to have easier access to it.
But let me show you mine, we make a free software distro because we
share the love for free software, and we want to see multimedia
production grow in the free software world. Off course we want to make
it easier for users, it's one of our key objectives. But if we
endorse, even indirectly the use of not floss licensed software, we
are not helping the growth it needs.
