It is difficult to compete with Garageband and the rest.  I have run
audacity (centos5.2) and while the sound works, the microphone
doesn't.  She insists that she has to have the microphones, video
capture, apps ... yep ... take what the latest Mac can do and those
are the specs.  I see her point.  And I didn't mean to lead the list
down this path but hopefully it is proving to be a useful discussion.
