it will never happen. There is no way on this earth that it would be in Ableton's interests to do this.

it was not very difficult to install my m-audio fast track pro under linux with wine.
and i think the graphics-library ableton uses in windows is not available under linux. but it's also not available under mac :wink:

and of course there are not many musicans using linux. but why? because steinberg, ableton and co are not supporting linux. why should you use an os when you can't use your important programms on that os?
i'm really sure that there will be more musicians using linux if ableton would support it. because windows is bullshit, a (good) mac is for many to expensive and linux runs on a pc and is free.
i own live 8 but i evan would pay a little bit for a crossgrade to live 8 on linux.

Yes, I've been waiting for Ableton, or Reason for linux for ages. For now the best software I've ran into is LMMS, since it supports windows VSTs through wine!!! but it gets buggy/stable version to version so u got to find a stable setup.

As for linux ableton, please do so, I can easily help create a market for DJs wanting a Super stable DJ rig, with Ableton + Linux Laptop. May it be an Apple or PC, I bet I can sell a more stable DJ rig setup on Ableton Linux than Ableton OSX

and if ableton would use the qt-library it would also be no problem. that library is crossplatform from win, over mac, to linux.

you know, porting live to linux could mean custom dedicated boxes running a slimmed down linux booting straight up to live. custombuilt audio computers, straight from ableton themselfes.

id buy one. how about you?

dont forget, linux is based on unix, as well as osx, so it wouldn't be hard to make ableton for it.

That's about the most ignorant statement I've ever heard.

I definitely would use it. Though, I work mostly with Max/MSP, so this would only make sense, if Max/MSP is running on Linux as well. But cycling said already, to make Max run on Linux would be way less effort, than the port to Windows was. The library cycling is using is cross-platform...
I am a long time Apple user (started with an Apple II compatible back then...), but Apples business strategies are pissing me off more and more. I wouldn't hesitate to switch completely to Linux. All Software I use, except for Max and Live, is completely cross-platform (Lyx, Thunderbird, Firefox, Office). Even my MacOS 9 emulators would run on Linux...;-)
I never really considered to actually use Windows, I need to fire it up sometimes, but thats enough for me, nothing to do serious work on. But thats solely a matter of taste...

I bet it will take some more years of a constantly growing Linux user base to encourage the software vendors to try the switch. But if that happens, it will cause a flood of change. This will astonish Microsoft so much, that it will bring them to a halt...;-)

The amount of support, my computer-newbie friends need since I installed them Linux, is diminished at least to a tenth, of what they had needed with windows. I still regret, that I brought my father to Mac OS (much earlier). In the mean time its more support demanding than Linux. But if you teach an old man something new, you won't do it again without good reason...;-)

Stefan

well i dont see why collecting similarities between linux & osx would be ignorant, ofc they arent the same, but very similar, in fact, would be much easier to port osx ableton to linux then port osx ableto to windowns and maintaining it...

It would be nice to have an official statement if they are even considering a Linux port.

Do you seriously need a statement???

You already know the answer. C'mon. Deep down you know this.

Well excuse me that I'm not as pessimistic as you ;-) I know it's unlikely, but even if they don't consider it at all it would be nice to know the official position on this.
