To be willing to learn is something you can count on, if you want to produce
music you are used to be willing to learn we things, but to be willing to
fix bugs and tweak files and permissions is something completely different.
It is true that the focus is not usability, but that same factor is always
a *sine qua non* factor for anything you aspire to call "pro" or "high
quality", so it should be faced as soon as possible imho.

The expectations are not clear right now, since the user doesn't know he
will face an known (commonly big) amount of issues to get it working. That
is exactly what makes users talk so bad about open source for audio
production in forums.
PD: Yes you can make great software with terrible UI (user experience as a
general concept), but is your software intended for machines or only
software experts ?
