    @metamourge somebody had to say it.

    All of the software coming from that guy really sucks ass and IMO is the reason the Linux desktop experience sucks right now. Shit used to work and that has become less and less true.

    He by himself is also the reason I switched to OpenBSD. I like systems that work and don’t have low IQ mongrels fucking it up because they’re bored and feel like complicating things.

    I switched my laptop (where my dev-magic happens) to Voidlinux as it uses runit as an init-scheme and offers native musl-libc support on top.

    So what's wrong in pulseaudio?

    Edit: should perhaps read tags too

    @Root I don't have that much of problems with pulseaudio, it works mostly out of box, some changes is required based on system but that's cause I have multiple audio outputs in desktop (hdmi, yeti and Mobo sound) but otherwise it's mostly works out of the box.

    I don't go as far to say it's flawless but for normal usage it's "good". Of course if I would require 0 latency and use my desktop as DAW I would stay far from pulse and use jack + alsa.

    I remember there were a lot problems with Pulseaudio about 5-10 years ago and I also stuck with alsa but nowadays I don't notice any "gamebreaking" issues personally.

    I didn't think I could ever want somebody to get cubed the subway until I had to interface with Pulse.
