    Phoronix: PulseAudio 13.0 Released With Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio Support

    While PipeWire may be seeing a lot of investment by Red Hat for improving audio/video streams on Linux, PulseAudio isn't letting up yet as the de facto Linux desktop sound server. Quietly released last week was PulseAudio 13.0 as the newest feature update and their first big update in some fifteen months...

    My tinnitus makes it so I prefer higher quality encodes because I can hear the treble better. With lower quality stuff I have to turn the volume up and get washy highs or I just deal with it.

    With most music I won't even bother complaining about low quality 128kpbs to 96kbps encodes...but then there's listening to Rush where it's FLAC or nope, nope, nope...

    Under 96kbps....damn right I don't like it....

    Perhaps it has to do with me being in band in back in school and knowing what good timbre sounds like.

    Most. Few people actually care about sound quality and lowered latency.
    And whether or not this is good or bad is entirely subjective

    Do note unique symbol on the Romani was because they were sacrificed for being classed as not pure. So to the Romani people it is 'Romani Holocaust' but to have their deaths recorded in history books and not forgotten Romani genocide had to be used.

    So what is more important getting the job done or sticking to your principles and not getting the job done. This is why thinking I am Romani Christian using Holocaust as example is a dead end for you. We decided that it was more important to to get the job done of recording the loss of life than sticking absolutely to a principle. If the Romani had stuck to that it had to be called Romani Holocaust in historic books early on the Romani deaths possible would have been white washed out of existence.

    The reality here is the accepting not to use the word Holocaust to get job done is no more artificial than the CoC. Does the CoC rules matter if you are there to code on the Linux kernel the answer is no it does not matter at all. All the restricted topics of CoC really have nothing to-do with software development.

    You really have not shown me that CoC is just bullshit by picking Holocaust as a point meant you had lost the arguement at that point. It something my group classed as term that we could accept not being used to get the important fact of the deaths recorded. What makes the CoC any different for software development where particular topics are off limits because they are just distractions to getting the job done.

    Yes all the arguement over what was and was not a Holocaust when you could call it a genocide and record all the details that proved it was a Holocaust instead what the difference long term. Romani faith makes us a little smarter at picking out battles.

    By the way the idea that the CoC defenders were not following the rules is mostly true.
    https://lwn.net/Articles/764325/
    But read above there are many people who were being adversely effected to the point of giving up on submitting patches. Yes these people who were being adversely effected were not pushing for the CoC but were working on the lkml obeying the rules over the CoC naturally. Its the old saying the silent majority. 98% of the stuff in the LKML archive conforms to the CoC over the complete history of Linux kernel development.

    At some point you have to make rules that suite the majority. Just like the same way us Romani had to tolerate the Holocaust against us being called genocide because that is what the majority wanted. Part of being civilised is not always getting what you want.

    And missing how it wrong. Holocaust is not a synonym for genocide but many groups are forced to use genocide instead of what is correct Holocaust because people treat the word as jewish only totally ignoring the religions based directly off jewish where the word has the same meaning for their people.
    I feel your pain. I was a Christian for many years, but I realized few important things and I don't pray to jewish 'god' anymore and I don't have to listen jewish stories while not being jew etc.

    Yes this is off topic to the basic idea of the thread.

    Romani Christian is also a primitive religion based off the outcasts of the jewish. So sections of the religion text is written in Hebrew. Yes the jewish documentation of around sacrifices is in the Romani Christian texts.

    That is the big problem. To the Romani Christians the thing called genocide was in fact holocaust because it was religious sacrifices. The Nazis in fact put a unique symbol on the Romani because they recognised that the jew and Romani were different.

    Basically you have just made the same stupid excuse why its not Romani holocaust completely missing that jewish and Romani Christian are directly interlinked religions. So what jewish call something is the exact same thing Romani call it.

    With damn CoC you would be banned from explaining the meaning of 'holocaust' and some people would consider it's a synonym of genocide which is not!
