    Do not repair pulseuadio, kill the project. They have had almost 10 years time to fix the shit.
    You realize that's over 3 years old?

    Something is severely wrong with your setup.

    We GNU Linux users want to know the hard numbers. Not percentages.

    Precisely. Percentage of what? Percentages are meaningless without the accompanying quantities.

    Too bad the gaming industry didn't take the opportunity more seriously. I guess they love being MS's bitch.

    The numbers don't include Linux users running Steam on Wine, who would be much more likely to run Linux Steam if there was better Linux game compatibility.
