I’d rather work with the Linux community than Apple, too. Can you imagine the hoops that Apple will be forcing developers like Steinberg to jump through?!
Firstly they will do their best to force an app store requirement for third party developers, secondly will be an attempt to phase out VST vs AU architecture so that apps are universal. I really hope developers don’t get dragged down this hole, but of course, there’s a large percentage of paying customers there.
Something that the Linux community doesn’t really offer right now. I’d love nothing more than a true mainstream linux audio platform, but the pot of gold just ain’t there to make it logical.
