It's getting there. But it's more of night-to-night operation :-)

I've got it installed on 3 computers now.

My laptop
My home studio computer
My desktop at my work

I'm an Open Source person myself (been that for almost as long as
Stallman ;-) and I do buy the books of the programs that I like and
use. I do have about 30-40 books from O'Reilly today and a few from
others. Most of them I use, or have used, in my daily work (not
audio).  And I would definitely buy a book about Ardour. I like the
program and I've started a swedish translation of it. That have given
me even more knowledge of the program.
