A Host For Native Linux VST Plugins ?

| To a degree, VST support under Linux already exists. The FST and
| DSSI projects provide utilities to open and run Windows-specific
| VST plugins. Those projects do work, but they are dependent on WINE.

SeaMonkey 1.1 offers a good alternative to Firefox

,----[ Quote ]
| The Good
|
| Stable, proven foundation
|
| Security features on par with Firefox
|
| With the addition of the third party xSidebar, it can run several
|
| ported Firefox extensions, in addition to the usual
| Mozilla and SeaMonkey-only extensions.
|
|
| The Bad
|
| The SeaMonkey suite and its product name are not really known
| outside the geekosphere. I always end up explaining "it's
| Mozilla", and then more often than not having to explain that
| "Firefox branched-off from the same Mozilla source code" after
| getting a blank stare. The same people who don't know SeaMonkey
| often end up asking "and how about Netscape?", showing that the
| SeaMonkey team still has a lot of work to do to promote its
| open sauce project.
|
| The Ugly
|
| Nothing really ugly.
