> The PPC Linux sound drivers are very nearly, but not quite, OSS compatible. I've found a number of programs that don't like it on my Power Mac 8200 with the DMA sound driver; xmms and mikmod, for example. (Although alsaplayer and xmp work fine.)

A long time ago (before PowerMac sound support was added to dmasound), I was
able to use mikmod on my m68k Amiga. It did require an endian patch for
mikmod, though.

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
