    We all exist in the same plane of timespace because you know we are confined to earth, so obviously modern. You don't exist in an alternate reality obviously.

      So does this has networking like PulseAudio and can I use it to send Audio/Video over the network to multiple devices where it will be played in a synchronized fashion? Or did I understand the "it's like PulseAudio" wrong?

          ?!?!
          Dafuk was anticompetitive (lack of serious competitors is another thing), and wtf is the antitrust supposed to do on a free software project that is supported by voluntary choice of distros?

          Someone must have a very thick tin foil headgear and tin foil full-body armor here.

              Well you can de-install pipewire, but then the services it provides will not work, so you get a partially broken system. Its kinda like opting out of using dnf. Yes you can do it, but then how do you get your updates? We don't add stuff to the operating system for a laugh, we pick and develop them because they solve or help solve challenges we need to solve.

                  If pipewire is meant to be useful, I sure hope it is nothing like pulseaudio. On every system that I need audio to work at, pulseaudio is the first component I remove, using ALSA directly, instead.

                  When pulseaudio was introduced as a default component of RedHat Linux (so certainly well beyond the stage that one could consider pulseaudio "just an experimental beta") I tried very hard to make my setup workable with pulseaudio - but even spending hours of trying a multitude of configurations did not yield me a solution to my simple requirement "User A to use audio device X, while user B uses audio device Y on the same computer at the same time". This is a requirement I could solve using ALSA directly within minutes. For pulseaudio, I only got frustrated with seemingly non-deterministic behaviour, things "just not working without any useful error message", applications just stopping for user A when user B did something with a completely different device, and the documentation of pulseaudio was outright catastrophic.

                  To me pulseaudio appears to have been crafted by someone who only thinks of single-user systems for dumb people who cannot be trusted with any technical feed-back or instructions on how to configure things. If I wanted that, I would run Windows.

                  I sure hope pipewire does not attempt to become a "video equivalent" of the mess that pulseaudio is for audio.

                    Classic! At least your bigotry isn't confined to distributions and window managers ...

                      If it makes that garbage more like Windows, it's a step foward.
