With the ever growing popularity of Linux as a desktop operating system, more and more people are beginning to see it as a usable and valid alternative to proprietary software. Music composition software available on Linux over the last few years has seen a dramatic acceleration in quality and diversity. Coupled with the possibility of obtaining exceptionally low-latencies when using a linux based audio system (sub milisecond with a patched kernel), it is not hard to see the reason for its rise in popularity.
- There is a wiki at opensrc.org which aims to provide a central database for Linux musicians to offer links to their own work, and to give descriptions of how particular pieces were composed as well as to provide instrument patches for the general community.
