Hello,

PulseAudio has been one of the major sources of complaints and of
problems for both the 11.0 and 11.1 release, with significant annoyances
for openSUSE users, as reported on IRC and on local forums.

As a consequence it is worth to consider the possibility to disable it by
default on freshly installed systems for openSUSE 11.2.

I unfortunately have to agree with you. I fully respect and support what
the PulseAudio team is trying to accomplish, but if an app that manages
something that is a core function of a system doesn't operate correctly
with apps that users, well, use; then it's our responsibility as a
distributor of the software to either make it work or provide the
alternative. The last time I tried to use Skype with PulseAudio, it
didn't work. Say what you want about the closed source software, it's a
popular app and I think it's important for us to work with it.
