John has actually had the worst "luck" with linux that I have ever
come across. I do not believe that his experience is typical. That
doesn't mean it isn't instructive.

Although I agree with the general tone of your message, I think this
claim is really completely wrong if we are talking about using linux
for pro-audio/music creation (and probably video too). There *is*
information floating around on the web, but (a) its certainly not in
man pages (b) its very disorganized, badly maintained, and often
disappointingly distribution specific.
