    Using systemd journal will already provide much more info than syslog+sysvinit when the app uses syslog interface (or even just stdout/stderr). Those interfaces have no way of providing fine-grained structured logging, so that requires using the native systemd interface. Completely optional, but very useful.

        In other words, mostly due to problems with proprietary software?..

          Is is still like that? Problems with audio on various Linux games was one reason I stopped using it on a regular basis. Though I'm still interested in how well these things work nowadays but I don't take time to test it out myself. So is it still like that you have to fiddle around to get such apps working with sound correctly? (honest question)

            Wired has the upside of being more stable, more universal, being cheaper, having slightly less latency, better quality, no background noise, no potential health issues due to wireless thing near your brain for hours.

              VLC is not proprietary.
              VLC also has no problems with PA here.

                It's been years since I've had any sound issue in Linux with Pulse, but then I don't have a very fancy set-up.

                  Flash is the sole reason I have to use PulseAudio. Flash is hardcoded to use the first sound card. Too bad on my Lenovo laptop the first output is HDMI, not the internal PCH.

                    Mistakenly left word "provides", as well as a strange summary of "various small changes" and "many bug-fixes" providing two "major new features".

                    Even in "beginner distros" like Ubuntu you can ignore the dependency hell in a fairly simple manner: https://serverfault.com/questions/25...e-dependencies

                      Personally I make use of bt headphones.
                      I don't use bluetooth on Linux because bluez command line is 5.0 and all the gui apps for bluez are still 4.0. Can't really use it if I need to pair and discover devices on command line.
