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 opened an enhancement request to collect votes and motivations here https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=478511
Please, keep the entry on bugzilla as clean as possible. All the discussion should be done here on the ML.
To vote, please, don't simply add a "+1", but use the blue button to cast your votes (up to five per each user) in bugzilla.
With kind regards, Alberto
