    Phoronix: Ubuntu 22.10 Switching To PipeWire For Linux Audio Handling

    An early change made this week to Ubuntu 22.10 in its early development state is replacing the PulseAudio sound server with PipeWire...

    Nice. I've been using PipeWire for over a year and it just works! And apps like Helvum make life much easier.

    On a side note, It's also interesting that they replaced Gedit with Text Editor, so Ubuntu is finally embracing Libadwaita apps.

      What's so good about that new text editor (and the new terminal)? I think they both suck because they just don't have any features at all (I get it, Gnome is not KDE, but removing features from the apps themselves is too much for me). I've seen even the most die hard Gnome fans criticize the new terminal. Fedora 36 unfortunately replaced Gedit with the new text editor, but kept the old terminal. I hope the terminal will not be replaced with the new one in a future version.

        Well, I tried gnome-text-editor and all I can say it is virtually useless for all practical purposes. It feels like a beginner's first try of coding a piece of software but nothing which I would release to public.

          I would add that I completely understand decisions like removing desktop or tray icons if the motive is to remove hacky code, because that's the reason Gnome is so stable unlike KDE. But it seems that the reason they try to replace Gedit and the old terminal with the new apps is because this way they can also be used on the Gnome mobile ui (or whatever it's called). I'm not a fan of that. It seems they try to adopt convergence (a la Windows 8)

            My Manjaro KDE without a single crash in two years is offended by this statement.

              wahay, good to see them jump on the pipewire bandwagon.

              On Libadwaita apps, I hope they work upstream to make sure the features they want are present.

              I dont know why people consider gnome-text-editor to have less features than gedit. It mostly has more, but there is not a 100% overlap.

                I've used KDE on Manjaro, Tumbleweed and Kubuntu. I can say that on Manjaro KDE crashes can go undetected because it doesn't show any notification message about the crash. On the latter 2 it does show them.

                  What? Why do you think it is virtually useless? It's just meant to be a modern gedit replacement (a fancy text editor), not a full fledged IDE like GNOME Builder.

                    Yeah, you'd think that most Linux users would want the more feature-packed and customizable software, which is KDE. GNOME seems to try to target very novice users (which should account for 0% of Linux desktop users), and it does so with a desktop environment that would be unfamiliar to them.
