""Not saying a Linux port wouldn't be great, it might be, but it's a really big effort and wouldn't make a whole lot of business sense at this point for avid/adobe.

Does fairlight run on Linux? Why not?"

Fairlight runs on Win XP and Win 7. They make no attempt to be cross platform and don't need the grunt - hardware or software. I would be happy if they ran their own GUI under DOS but there is no need to push for any change. WIN 7 OS is not a turkey and it handles more than enough RAM for a DAW.

Fairlight also developed their own processor based on FPGA which has so much grunt that the OS, CPU and graphics cards have almost nothing to do except draw the screen and do a bit of VST plugin processing. It is like RED Rocket on steroids for audio.

The rationale behind going Linux for AVID and Adobe would be the cheapest most reliable true grunt boxes would be able to run rings around overpriced and underperforming Mac hardware and graphics. So what's in it for AVID & Adobe? An alternative super reliable OS with the gruntiest workstations at a much more affordable price. Best of both worlds.
