Non-Linux FOSS: Let's Make Music Together
Just because you're not on Linux doesn't mean you can't have awesome open-source tools. I was having a conversation with a friend and reader (Don Crowder: @eldergeek) on Twitter the other day about music theory. Yes, I'm not just a computer nerd, but a music/math nerd too. Anyway after our conversation, I started looking for an open-source program for creating sheet music. Not only was I able to find one, but it happens to work for those folks on Windows as well as Linux.
Mind you, I'm a neophyte when it comes to music theory, but thankfully, MuseScore is useful for experts and n00bs alike. Not only can you create sheet music, but you also can download thousands of pieces others have created and shared on the Web site.
If you're a Windows user who wants to dabble in sheet music, but can't afford something like "Finale", MuseScore is right up your alley. If you're a musician who wants to give back, please join the community of users and contribute some of your music. To see how MuseScore is helping blind musicians, check out Katherine Druckman's article.
If you want to download MuseScore for yourself, you can download it from your repositories if you're on Linux, or download the installer from the Web site for Windows or OS X: http://www.musescore.com.
