    I really don't have a need for PulseAudio. All I have is JACK and an ALSA Loopback interface for ALSA-applications that connects through JACK and through my sound card.

    The problem with PulseAudio is it takes up CPU resources that it does not need.

    Yeah, that's true. I wonder who use Bluetooth devices with their computers? Desktop computers?

    I do.. I have bluetooth headphones with a microphone. I sometimes also stream audio via. bluetooth from my Nexus 7 to my desktop computer. Again.. it mainly is just "pair, enable and play" with Pulseaudio.

    Default Bluetooth Speakers

    I use bluetooth between my laptop, my smartphone, and my speakers so that I can move between my table and bed in my studio apartment. I don't currently have a desktop. If I had an HTPC, I could see a use for it with that as well given my current speakers setup.

    I have HTPC. Redirecting music from my phone would be nice, and I think all the features are available now so I plan on trying it out soon.

    too late to edit:

    So would the opposite: playing a movie on the htpc and having the sound directed to headphones connected to my phone.

    I'm a happy user too and I don't use bluetooth devices. I use it to easily switch streams from PC speakers/Headphones to my AV receiver (HDMI).
    This way I can play games on the headphones and someone else watches movies on the TV.

    Many people use bluetooth devices with their desktop computers.

    You just have a "i am not using it, so it is useless to everybody" syndrome...

    Grow up...
