More thanks in return for helping Fedora get the latest rosegarden goodness.
It's really an amazing program to complement this amazing OS. There's no
reason to get a PC or a Mac anymore, or spend hundreds on software, hundreds
more updating, and constant "do I dare upgrade to SP3 now that everything
works" worries...  with fedora and rosegarden and all the plugin synths and
midi support that it provides, who needs 'em!

And of course, you can send my feedback back to the RG developers. No need

Regarding Rosegarden, now that it has an up-to-date interface, I'm less
inclined to keep trying out other competing programs like qtractor or muse.
Actually, I usually do, especially if I see a major update, but invariably

soon launching on http://trainspodder.com )
