mention the screenshot - its ardour0.9x - Ron Parker masters with Linux
for some time now and he keeps the data on a RAID-Server that delivers
via Ethernet.

this works quite easy and stable for up to ten computers - I did a
project last year with it: 8 computers running Linux from LiveCDs
playing as single instruments getting their notes from my laptop running
(sorry - in german only...)

Another network-capable way to deliver and fetch MIDI in Linux is OSC,
more flexible but not as easy to use...

If this one sends generic WAV-Data with a generic streamprotocol it
should work in Linux also. The best method to have WAV via Ethernet
under Linux is netjack:

you see - there is even more as you might have expected on GNU/Linux
already.I guess, if you plan something of the above (like having a
FOH-Mixer working via Ethernet), Linux can give you, what you need...
