I've never found *any* sound subsystem on Linux to be "reliable and
flexible".  And when you have a system
 with *both* Pulse and Alsa-backwards-compat-mode, it's a frikken
nightmare. The problem seems to be that
 for over a decade, everybody wanted *their* Kewl sound subsystem to be
incorporated into Linux distributions.
 So everyone go their wish, and there are no standards.


All I'm saying is that pulseaudio on Ubuntu seems to just work these days.
