Open Sound System is an audio subsystem that provides a cross platform API and device drivers for most consumer and professional audio devices for UNIX® and POSIX based operating systems, including Linux. Owing to its open architecture, applications developed on one supporting operating system platform can be easily recompiled on any other platform. Open Sound System on Solaris supports x86, AMD64 and Sparc processors. It also provides support for the Solaris Audio API (SADA or commonly known as devaudio). SADA applications will transparently run on top of Open Sound System drivers and will co-exist with [http://manuals.opensound.com/developer/ OSS API] compatible applications.

Our 21st century world revolved around forum posts, blog posts, email and text messaging. These tools can be used to hold a conversation with one or more entrepreneurs who may be willing to share some insight into the business you are seeking to establish.

Imagine the individuals who developed the pet rock, mood rings and other pop culture gadgets of the past. Their ideas didn�t last forever, but they were able to create enough interest that, for a time, their �big idea� found wings.

Entrepreneurialism is forged in the furnace of personal passion. If you believe strongly enough in your idea that passion can translate to others who can catch your vision - that vision is assisted when you have someone who can answer your questions as you get started.

Entrepreneurialism requires great patience, an eye toward the future and a solid belief in the product or service you are making available.

[edit] Introduction

Open Sound System is an audio subsystem that provides a cross platform API and device drivers for most consumer and professional audio devices for UNIX® and POSIX based operating systems, including Linux. Owing to its open architecture, applications developed on one supporting operating system platform can be easily recompiled on any other platform. Open Sound System on Solaris supports x86, AMD64 and Sparc processors. It also provides support for the Solaris Audio API (SADA or commonly known as devaudio). SADA applications will transparently run on top of Open Sound System drivers and will co-exist with OSS API compatible applications.
