I whine, bitch and moan because although I do have the capability to write a tracker, I don't have the patience to, as I am busy with quite a few other projects at any given moment, and although I have been waiting patiently for many years for a single viable tracker to emerge on the UNIX platform, so far not a single viable tracker has emerged, and frankly, my patience has worn quite thin. As I understand it, Impulse Tracker (for DOS) was mostly written over the course of a few months (in pure Assembler, no less); why can't there be anything even remotely similar after many years for Linux?
I would honestly pay good money to anyone who can provide a usable, working music production system for Linux. As an example, I donated $50 to Pulse for his work on Impulse Tracker simply because it was such a relatively high-quality piece of software (if I just wanted to write out stereo .WAVs, there would have been far cheaper ways to do that); I would personally donate at least that much to anyone who can help to liberate me from Windows, and I'm sure many other musicians would do the same.
Seriously, if I had the time and patience to do so, I would write it myself. I have several ideas for (what I think are) new (evolutionary, not revolutionary) ideas in music production which would make for something quite usable and flexible, but my plate's currently full with other stuff.

I have a master's degree in science!
