Duaine & Laura Hechler:

Reyburn Cybertuner http://www.reyburn.com/

The gentlemen that wrote Cybertuner actually really likes Linux and
would probably offer a version - except - that, from talking to him
a while back, Linux is lacking some sort of "system" hook (API?) to
talk to something in the hardware that Windows & Mac have. The

wrt sound hardware: Quite unlikely. Maybe the cybertune developers had
a bit of a hard time fighting their way through the balkanized linux
sound api jungle? All too understandable, too.

But there is hope: For instance Lennart Poettering, the Pulseaudio
guy, just published a pretty good overview on
http://0pointer.de/blog/projects/guide-to-sound-apis
which should help audio developers to make a good first decision.

Some of the api's, especially ALSA, are awesome. In every sense of the
word. As usual: The main barrier to wider adoption (including windows
people who consider linux ports) is good documentation.
