This is not what I meant anyway. I mean something that would show off
what muO is capable of. You have shown me a page with some
compositions and it gave me already a better idea. That would be good
enough to start with, I would say.

We could argue on this one. Not sure it would benefit any of us though. :)

I did better. I have contacted you and then looked around what you've done.

You're right and that's exactly what I am telling you. You have
sparked interest in the screencast rather than the system. :P

Let's not insult marketing and sales people. :)

Are you saying that you don't have to "sell" your ideas for research
projects? I have never heard of such thing. Everybody has to convince
others of something at some point.
