I'll chime in with a different viewpoint. I do alot of my composition
while traveling so use a netbook with limited disk space. I'd much
prefer not to be forced to install my VSTs in multiple places on my
machine if that could be helped. Why not simply make a config option
for locating the root VST plugin folder and default it to something
within the LMMS install? That way people like me can point it as a
common install location if we want to and we can still use relative
paths when saving in a project?
