IMO a DAW still doesn't belong to audio core components. JFTR LMMS is
_not_ the kind of DAW most musicians and engineers want to use. It's
more common that musicians and engineers are used to DAWs similar to
Qtractor, Ardour 3 and Rosegarden. Nearly nobody expect a DAW to be
light weighted, a common work-flow, more or less self-explaining GUI
more often is wanted.


Btw. I've never seen a stable version of Enlightenment. Xfce4 and JWM
are stable.
