After plugging this interface in to my laptop and configuring it
properly, I have a multitrack hard disk recorder that can
simultaneously record 24 tracks at a maximum sample rate of 96KHz,
well above the maximum available sample rate on far more expensive
commercial HDRs, with more available input tracks.
That's a "solution".
Above all, Ardour strives to meet the needs of professional users.
This means implementing all the "hard stuff" that other DAWs ( even
some leading commercial apps ) handle incorrectly or not at all.
That's the "software".
That's the "hardware".

In other words, even though there's obviously more out there Windows at
this time, Linux is /definitely/ worth the time to develop for.
