Sure, I do greatly benefit from open source community efforts
however I have always done my best to actually buy the software for
netbsd through wasabi systems which seemed like a great idea for
actually getting things going. I have bought netbsd a couple times.
Its maybe only a foolish principle to try and support the software
monetarily I don't know. Perhaps if more people did various improvements
could be made. As for doing it for fame and for the opportunity to give
and not just recieve I write my fair share of C systems programming code
for the unix environment and 'gave' it away free without even an open
source license. truly public domain people can take it and keep it. _secret_
this I feel amounts to giving.
Maybe if there was more money behind LMMS people might "care" about it
more! seeing as it would be less a dodgy hacker attempt at music production
software. Seeing as there isn't I will write the diff patch in the hope
that people might find 0.4.4 something to care about.
I'll keep you posted

Doubtles you are right about that. Its just so easy to come up with
the five grand for ableton live and worse for logic pro.

sorry about the broken "mangled" problem report I only just got email
Clearly not many people in the giving open source community have time
for LMMS as it has been years now that pkgsrc has had 0.2.0
please excuse my attitude in the first place. I get ticked off
when I'm trying to write songs on my favourite OS and it really is
pushiing you know what uphill with a stick.
