Who is Muse

Libre Arts has a good write up from May on the formation of Muse (aka Ultimate Guitar) and their spate of acquisitions, including Audacity. Audacity isn’t the first FLOSS they acquired. The comments speculate on how they actually acquired something that in theory is free. https://librearts.org/2021/05/ultimate-guitar-launches-muse-group-and-acquires-audacity/

Next Question

Jim Salter at Ars Technica has more on the Muse/Audacity story. The changes haven’t been released yet, coming in 3.03. The community of Audacity users responded months ago. The next question I have is whether Muse has any sort of authentic alignment with Audacity and FLOSS generally. https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2021/07/no-open-source-audacity-audio-editor-is-not-spyware/
