    I gifted myself a "new" laptop on christmas and gave pipewire and wireplumber a try. But then I noticed that I lost audio after a few minutes of my Zoom calls. "Reverted" back to pulseaudio and everything's fine. At least almost, as I couldn't figure out how to stop wireplumber and pipewire-pulse to start on each login without completely uninstalling them.

      Who is they? If you read the arch wiki carefully https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Sys...ing_the_system you must have noticed that there is a posibillity of breakage.
      That said, the only problem I remember was an outdated key. I simply put the error message in google, copied the solution from there and was ready to go.

        I've been running PipeWire on my computers for quite a while now, so there was no trouble for me when I got that package.

          Well, I haven't updated in a while. When I update there will be no issues

            Yeah, that might be a reason. I don't remember anymore. The upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04 broke and was the final straw for me switching to Arch. At my last employer, we used dozens of Ubuntu laptops and of course they broke every now and then. In my experience, that didn't happen more often than Windows on any update (rather more rarely). And yes, we used a few PPAs back then because Canonical didn't provide everything needed.

            In my experience, the HWE stacks are more of a problem as they replace a big chunk of the stable LTS base.
            Ithink you problems are that old ubuntu distros, hwe was new thing at time, right now, i cant remember to have broke things in ubuntu using lts distros, upgrading one to another is always a bad ideia, or you use everything from them or you will have problems with ppa

              Another way to look at it: It's so uncommon that, when it does, it makes the news.

                Nightly Chromium and default VLC both have bugs on Ubuntu for me.

                EndeavourOS asked me to add a new signing key

                  This isn't breakage, it's just unceremoniously overwriting user's settings.
                  Fwiw, I've been using WirePlumber on Arch for months and it's working just fine. But I don't have any Pulse or ALSA specific settings. I've had some Pulse specific settings before, but when I switched to PipeWire, it was easy to find them in PipeWire's docs so I migrated everything (i.e. a few lines) myself.

                    Had that same issue a while back when Manjaro attempted to switch to wireplumber. This thing is clearly not ready.

Idk how good are Ubuntu upgrades (never done them myself), but if you mean regular updates, it sounds like you have dozens of ppa's installed. Ubuntu should never break like a rolling release if you don't saturate it with ppa's, especially those that change system libraries.
                      Yeah, 'cause Ubuntu is perfect in every way, right? Even rock stable stuff can break.
