I've been using Debian more or less exclusively since 0.93R6.  I did my
first Debian installation over four years ago.  I've been very happy with
Debian, and I'm not eager to switch to RH.

That was on i386, of course.  My first Sparc installation was last week.

I've been a computer audio junkie for a while.  10 or 11 years ago, I even
built a serial port audio recorder from mostly Radio Shack parts and specs
I found on a BBS.  It almost worked, too.  :) Things have changed a bit since

I've been toying with the idea of porting ALSA, but that's a big job.
It runs on i386 and Alpha now, but it won't compile under sparc.  The DMA
code is all different.  It might be more than I have time to handle right
