    Future or not, some people just want it to WORK. And I can't blame them.

    For me, Pulseaudio is a royal pain in the behind. Although I am sure I can find a workaround, I do not want to "get over it", I want a permanent solution to the problem.

    Phonon makes Amarok work on Windows for me:

    Nor pulseaudio nor devicekit help Amarok working on Windows.
    So yes, I welcome Phonon.

    If you can't see what advantages pulseaudio brings to the table you are clearly not looking at the bigger picture.

    You know: I like to write simple code that automatically supports Xine, Gstreamer, VLC, Mplayer, DirectShow9, QuickTime and whatnot.

    I'll say it again.
    In theory, PA is nice.
    In practice, it was always a pain to remove it.
    Am I the only one using Linux box as HTPC ?
    all of you happy with stereo instead of 5.1/7.1 ?
    Non of you tried to connect HTPC to receiver with single optical cable ?

    Actually phonon is quite useful, mostly for programers to enable multifrontends without the need to extra code, but for users too to not have duplicate engines on their machine or to force the engine that in user perspective is better uses less memory...
    Well that's the theory though right now it has gstreamer and xine to choose from. I for one would welcome mplayer backend :P, as that's the engine I mainly use anyway I do not need xine or gstreamer.

    In other words phonon is also the future, not quite the present, just like PA.

    PulseAudio kicks ass. The few cpu cycles it uses are a small price to pay.

    I only get pops with my X-Fi using snd-usb-audio. I have to use the FFMPEG resampler.

    Pulseaudio works fine for me under arch, it actually gets rid of crackles and pops that I started getting.

    Does this mean my sound will no longer snap,crackle,pop, & turn off in Ubuntu 9.10??
    It seems like when a new release comes out they always break the sound somehow. Next time I'm going to wait a couple months before upgrading.

    This! If your are having problems I would suggest you check another distro first cause Ubuntu has some very cute patches that basically revert pulseaudio to the state it was in a couple of years back.

    I too had a lot of popping and hissing in pulseaudio back in fedora 9 and fedora 10 completely broke it for me as it did for many people since it implemented a new feature that was supposed to reduce said problems. Said feature eventually started working flawlessly in my 2 computers (Audigy 4 in desktop, Intel HDA in the laptop) and now I'm a happy camper. My audio in Linux is working better for me than in a certain OS from Redmond even.

    I for one welcome pulseaudio and devicekit and every abstraction layer that actually brings something useful to the table (so no, I don't welcome Phonon) like being able to to use a bluetooth headset without having to drop to the command line and read lord knows how many man pages and docs till I get my sound working at the precise time I don't need it anymore.
