    Now only if Ubuntu developers would picking up and use it by default in the next Ubuntu version instead of chasing wild goose!
    Every time a new promising technology comes up (systemd, Wayland) that solves real problems, Ubuntu prefers to stand aside for 10 years, not to contribute anything and then pick it up and use it when it's developed and polished by others.
    Maybe they want to compete with Nvidia in selfishness.
    Congratulations and many thanks to Red Hat and whoever is working on it!

      Dont feel too bad, since moving to fc35 and pipewire the only noticeable difference is my surround sound doesnt work anymore and there is no documentation explaining how to get it working again.

      Thats after wasting 2 hours getting it to work at all.

        Not quite, they stand aside for years and then often come up with their own NIH solution that is worse: mir, snap, upstart.
        Mark (Shuttleworth) was angry at the open source crowd for celebrating his failures but it's his fault, he's been making serious stupid decisions.

          I have the opposite experience: bluetooth audio support has become a whole a lot better.

            AFAIK Ubuntu has been dropping in-house developed features left and right for the past at least four to five years. Mir for all intents and purposes is dead (replaced with Wayland), Unity is dead (replaced with gnome), upstart is dead (replaced with systemd), etc. etc. etc.

            Let's just say they don't want to deal with a torrent of new bug reports for new shiny not well-tested features RH has come up with. After all we are talking about PipeWire version 0.3.40, which is a far cry from 1.0(.0.).

              Entrepreneurs ruin everything.

                *insert PulseAudio flashbacks here*

                Ubuntu will at some point, replacing PulseAudio in the process, but will ship it in a broken state unlike the other distros.

                    The version scheme is a bit different. PA has matured a bit, but surely doesn't feel like it has a history of 15 stable production versions. Pipewire 0.3.40 is somewhere close to PA 6 or 7 when it comes to stability and maturity.
