Question: If REAPER ever become open-source (as you said before that it may, right?), then what will be the pros and cons of it? Tbh, I find open source softwares less stable & buggier than the proprietary softwares

    It would become open-source before it would ever be abandoned ;)

    So, you have a plan for abandoning such a beautiful software? :( also, making REAPER open-source may introduce lots of bugs & the software would eventually become less stable than now. I tried lots of open-source DAWs, none of them are as good as proprietary softwares. It clearly shows that paid softwares are better than free softwares. Maybe, some are exceptions (GIMP, VLC etc.)

    It's a fallacy that open-source software has more bugs than proprietary software. :)

    @ED especially if this software is made by Justin ;)

    EvilDragon is right. Vitali I think you might have misunderstood him, though.

    @Justin I understood him and added something from my own. ;) I agree a number of bugs doesn't depend on source code type.
