Because that is the default sound system on both Fedora and Ubuntu.
While pulse does offer a alsa emulation layer it adds issues/delays
itself, or if SD gets the lock on the alsa device before pulse does
the user might not get any other sound. It also adds support for other
audio devices such as bluetooth headsets, and dynamically routing
desktop speakers to audio headsets or back when they get unplugged.
