Ask a Linux user to play some records, and he'll start coding a cross-fader
This post by Brazilian blogger Nicolau Werneck seems to illustrate everything that is right and wrong and right about folks who use Linux for music (in this case, DJing at his brother's birthday party). Here's the bit where he reinvents the crossfader: "I couldn't find a proper simple JACK mixer program, so first I made my own. It has a scrollbar to select the mixing level, and a bunch of radiobuttons to change the mixing style between linear, fixed-then-linear, sudden and quadratic. The jack part just outputs the weighted sum of the two inputs."
