Everyone is going to PulseAudio (Why? Because they can!). But I've had
sound problems on and off for the past year with any Linux distro. I
think perhaps the kernel decided it didn't like me anymore a while back.
About the only distro that will give me guaranteed sound is Knoppix (but
then it's over a year old).
Ubuntu used to prior to a year ago, now it's a hit and miss.
But no distro with PulseAudio is giving me sound (or any clue as to how
to get it working). I've recently tried Fedora 8, Fedora 9, & Mandriva
I'm beginning to thing PulseAudio is like GStreamer. It's great (as long
as you're a programmer).
I've never used an OS I didn't (dis)like.
