And Maverick before Natty. By Maverick I stopped having audio issues,
everything just worked on all machines that got a fresh install
(upgrades were not so smooth). Remove the pulseaudio and alsa dotfiles
as well from your $HOME directory.

I can say that I use Skype, Amarok, Flash, Mplayer, VLC, Ekiga, Juk,
and other applications with no problems.
