    Perhaps it's time for Ubuntu users to complaint about their own packagers instead of PA :

    Im using fedora (11), which still works better than ubuntu.

    Is Nokia running exactly the same codebase as the rest of us? Maybe they fixed it up and didnt share yet. Or worse, they optimized for arm only.
    Is pulseaudio adaptive and 'lets itself' to more cpu cycles if they are available?

    Every pulse release is the same:

    User community: PA sucks, why won't it just go away?

    PA fan club: No all your applications and drivers and sound-cards suck. Pulse is fine the world needs to change.

    Yep, it could be his intention, but it seems he failed to give real arguments

    @kraftman :

    The guy there wanted to make a general point how things in OSX just work, and things in linux often do not.

    Reading his message pulseaudio is mentioned there as an example of general linux mentality to push new API/ABIs and break compatibility with commercial closed software ... That point is nothing new and I say screw the blobs and go forward, then again from a user point of view that has to use skype for work or whatever thing one could understand from where those frustrations come. He also correctly mentions how linux skype client seems to be in poorer state then osx or windows port. All in all after reading his blog I got the feeling he isn't blaming linux or pulseadio he just wants something that works (for him)

    though kubuntu doesn't use PA that's a fact..

    Sound stalls about every 3 seconds. This might be related to BOINC eating up every remaining CPU cycle, but I am not willing to forgive _any_ software for not working properly under such circumstances, therefore I just deleted PulseAudio instantly and went back to whatever is running on Squeeze ^^

    Maybe the Version is just too old, it's 0.9.19-2, which doesn't seem too old.

    It seems there are many people who hate Pulse Audio (even if it's not its fault sometimes):

    http://movingparts.net/2009/11/10/i-...desktop-linux/

    it seems some OS X fanboys (or advertisements guys) have fun there. Author of this bull is (afaik weakly) related to KDE project (and he attacks it as he's os x fanboy ;>). He says he had problems with skype in Kubuntu and blames Pulse Audio (next to some other Linux things) and praises OS X. Strange, because afaik Kubuntu doesn't use Pulse Audio. The funny thing is he posted this article a day after Apple released upgrade to Snow Leopard and there's probably more then half apple fanboys comments (I didn't know they're interested in Linux, so much to find this article...). There's also some response to this:
