    Great, more garbage software from a developing country.
    Classic! At least your bigotry isn't confined to distributions and window managers ...
    If it's by hat red it's definitely not from a developing country. Unless you count USA's state of virginia as a developing country. I'm sure it will great with time just like pulseaudio. Personally, I will just stick to other solutions. I am sure (someone) will find a excellent use for it though.

      Awesome. I hope it breaks everything for PulseAudio haters, and is as unremovable as possible, so that it forces them to switch to BSD or Windows, so they'll stop poisoning our community.

            Unless you are building an audio workstation I don't see what issues PA is giving you.
            Pulseaudio had no issues on anything I've used OpenSUSE or Linux Mint Debian on in the last 3 years.

            .

            Pulseaudio works by default on a per-user basis, so that should as easy as changing pulseaudio per-user files in their home directories.

              How come there are so many completely clueless trolls on here complaining about progress in Linux? Pulseaudio and systemd are both major wins for Linux as a platform, retards who have not written a single line of code or sent a single bug report should just be quiet.

                Haha, it is the Current Year and troll still hate systemd and pulseaudio. I never had a problem with these since a couple if years already. Idk, maybe switch from your crappy hardware with badly supported audio drivers.

                "Anticompetitive". No, it is as competitive as you get. If you don't like it then continue using shell scripts. Can't blame distributions they choose superior system. Same goes for pulseaudio.

                Shout out to red had devs. Keep up the good work, the silent 99% majority supports your efforts in making Linux superior platform that it already is.

                  And your experiences are yours. On Gentoo PA just simply pauses the audio by itself for completely unexplainable reasons. There has been no input on it, no advice, no solution. It's been this way since at least 3 years. Plus there's the multiple seconds of latency that is completely unavoidable. That also has had no input, no advice and no solution. It those two major bugs that make it unusable for -me-. It's plainly obvious how experiences can differ.

                    Where's the bug report? Never seen this on my machines, sounds more like a Gentoo specific issue. Due to use flags, masks and lots of other factors not one Gentoo box is the same either I guess. If it's reproducible on Gentoo and nobody was able to debug it in 3 years then I'd say that sounds to me like the Gentoo community is dead.

                      Assuming it's true (and I have no way to check it is on Gentoo), that's a Gentoo issue, not a PulseAudio issue.

                      Same as Ubuntu that for some reason manages to have their KDE boot in 1 minute on a SSD and use a ton more RAM than normal.
