It worked out-of-the-box on my system, but it had not run ardour/jackd 
before on this installation...

Indeed! But I managed to crash it twice already the first day I tested it...

1. In the first open/create session dialog I typed 'test' as session 
name and ardour just exits. When opening ardour from the cli, it 
complained that it couldn't create the dir because it already existed...

2. Enable jack transport, create a loop and play that loop... Ardour 
crashes after 0-5 secs... This is a very old bug which is also present 
on Mantis for a while...

Me neither... As long as I can't get jack transport working or Ardour 
ships with native Midi tracks, I can't completely loose Windows/Cubase.

Ardour is underway to become a very important DAW, especially with all 
the support it gets lately from the big names! I would love Ardour to 
become somewhat more stable and full support for Midi so that I (and 
probably a vast amount of peers) can use it on a daily basis...

Keep up the good work!
