Not really for me...  I'm going to demand everything comes in on a DVD.

Either that or one-song-per-CD.

We'll copy the files on the hd of the machine we're doing the work on.

Basically we're looking at business model kind of stuff, and we have a very 
good mixdown environment and an accomplished mix engineer, so we would like 
to try and attract some mixdown business but we have to get over this 
technical hurdle.  I think from a business perspective we can define some 
things about how we accept projects, but it needs to be reasonable.  If we 
can say we accept projects on DVD or one-song-per-CD projects with AAF 
files, and then we smooth out our ability to import AAF into Ardour then we 
can stabilize our systems without having to really spend much time in 
Windows.  Mostly I'd like to wean our mix engineer off of Windows!
