Ill 3rd that.  I came from a Win2K environment running CoolEditPro.  I couldnt afford
upgrading, and was familiar with Linux so i thought i would give Ardour a shot.  The
one thing that i thought i would miss about CE was the wav editor.  As it turns out,
i dont really miss it after all.  As Brett McCoy pointed out, i really like being able
to do software "patch panel" type signal routing (eg. Ardour -> Jamin -> Ardour) and
syncronization (Ardour & Rosegarden).  So far, Ardour has had everything i needed
to do what i needed done. 
Im still running 0.99.3, but look forward to playing with 2.0 someday.
Thanks to all contributors!!!

Hear hear! I occasionally have to venture into the Windows world and
quickly become frustrated when some things which I can do BY DEFAULT
with Linux + jack + Ardour + Rosegarden can't be done on Windows with
Finale + Cakewalk. Luckily, I only use that Windows combination on my
laptop for composing and as a musical scratchpad... when it comes to
production recording and sequencing, it's Linux all the way.

Ardour 2 looks fantastic, BTW, and I am getting a Tranzport soon and
making the transition. I am probably going to use Ardour 0.99.3 for a
couple of existing projects but new stuff will be done in the newer
