Actually, I did just that night.  I went a step further and downloaded 
the daily live CD.

I did a fresh install.

Still no sound...

I have SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZS. It's a very popular card (although it's 
not being marketed anymore - it' s been replaced by the X-Fi - which ALSA 
says doesn't work in Linux, period - but that's another story). There are 
scads of them out there. So it's nothing unusual sound wise.

I've never used an OS I didn't (dis)like.
