Anybody using Ubuntu Studio without getting rid of pulse?

I'm using Ubuntu Studio, but I removed PA.

I won't argue with audio productions, but does anybody use GIMP while
having a call via skype or something similar?

IMO PA belongs to "averaged" desktop distros, but not to a distro for
artists. When drawing, I even turn off my fixed-line network.

No Pulseaudio + CPU freq scale gov set up to performance are basics for
any art.

Btw. if you wish to use less resources, without getting xruns, perhaps
setting up the CPU freq scale gov to a fixed limited freq will do the
job. AFAIK xruns are caused by changing the speed on demand, but I
suspect that a limit to 1GHz for your 2GHz CPU won't cause issues.

I wasn't aware that he died in 2005.
