    But you maybe a one task user, where most today are multitaskers. Not trying to be offensive!

      So you are listening music and watching film at the same time?

        Well for example I may have Amarok in pause mode while Me-TV(dvb-tv-card viewer) is going, while editing a video in Avidemux, while maybe having an instant messenger in the tray(even though I've uninstall skype now due to Microsoft ownership). In a ALSA only scenario, the sound would break trying to have two apps vying for the hardware. Also consider OS sound-events on top... and you have a nightmare if you can't multi address sound.

          Then Linux users don't care about that crap, because we have working ALSA and PA.

            I'm playing games and listen to Amarok same time. It wasn't possible with OSSv4 last time I tried.

              I'm using ALSA only and I can play two things at the same time. I didn't even notice that before.

                Seems like Linux users don't care about anything, but Linux.
                I have many problems with ALSA.

                  Funny, OSSv4 has sound mixing built-in.

                    I find that hard to believe. Do a test now with separate applications using ALSA...With no OpenAL/PulseAudio/OSS installed!

                      Of course with ALSA you can play multiple sources at a time. You just can't mix them other than going into the individual applications and adjust volumes there (or using some dmix hacks I guess).
