I do. Most my response is to the people who think Pulse Audio is the
end-all Audio solution when it's far from actually being so (With the
fact it's clearly not stable or mature enough for [extra] as part of
this.). The opinion it should be a default for Arch, for example, or
that it should be the standard for Linux are idiotic, since, as I stated
many times before, Pulse Audio is crap that solves nothing and breaks
everything. I'll stop posting on this topic now.
