Pulse audio: Just about every version of pulse audio in every
distribution has sucked.

grub2: this is a red herring; it has been very stable since March, at least.

ext4: if you don't trust it, you can use ext3.

Debian Squeeze will be out soon and Lucid and Squeeze will be pretty
much the same, except for Ubuntu's UI tweaks. I hope that you will
complain about Squeeze as vociferously as you are about Lucid...
