It's rather difficult to respect something that doesn't exist. > Unlike scribus, you can edit all kinds of picture files with Gimp. So now all of a sudden Scribus and GIMP aren't really alike? :) I can hear your logic cracking from miles and miles away :) Let's see: "- Krita: I open any file. I can choose "save" or "save as" without any complicated menu or any distinction about "native" file. This is the standard. - Scribus-1.4 : the same - Ardour : the same" Those were your words, verbatim. Now, I want you to do the following thing. I want you to start Scribus, open a PDF file via File/Open, edit it and save back via File/Save. I want you to start Ardour, open a WAV or MIDI file via File/Open (except it's Open Session, but hey), edit it and save back via File/Save (again, Save Session, but that shouldn't stop you). I want you to start Kdenlive, open an MP4 or AVI file via File/Open, edit it and save via File/Save. That will be your proof that these applications do not make distinction between native and non-native file formats. When you will be capable of doing that (which is never), we will talk about standards. Until then please let's not have this kindergarden. >>>> Wrong. Ardour is built around the concept of sessions.

That explains a lot. > > you can "save as" under an other name, it's very important My dear maderios, "Save As" saves a _snapshot_. Ardour doesn't even provide the typical saving dialog where you can choose a new file name, It just asks for a new snapshot name. Anybody who used Ardour more than 5 minutes knows that. Anybody who used Ardour more than 5 minutes understands the difference between a session and a snapshot. Insistence is a fine thing, but it's clearly misplaced in your case. Could we please move to discussing something interesting that actually exists?
