Allow VirtMus to RIP

Speaking as a musician, this software is poorly designed. Foot switch? Yes, it's USB, and it's already in use thank you. Page turning should me linked to the metronome. The preferred storage format is MIDI, not pdf or jpg. This is
pretty useless. Revive PowerTab, port it to linux, make the format open source, then you'd have something musicians have been asking for.

Most purchased sheet music comes with viewers. Dont forget that most sheet music is copywritten. Real musicians (even us shoestring budget garage bands) will pay. When I publish, I want my royalties, too.

We also mentioned, but it unfortunately wasn't in the final cut, our LJ Insider theme song was written by a Lullabot. :)

Shawn is Associate Editor here at Linux Journal, and has been around Linux since the beginning. He has a passion for open source, and he loves to teach. He also drinks too much coffee, which often shows in his writing.

As long as we are talking

As long as we are talking about how awesome our Drupal cover story is, I should point out that is a Drupal site, and I am a very happy Drupal user. Learning curve, shmerning curve. ;)
