Just my two cents:

You like a boomerang that either kills or comes back
to your hand. The
fancy coloring is for worthless crap sold to tourists.

well, saying this it seems you mean we have just forced PA in the distro
with us knowing it is a piece of crap.

I think we could really have waited for 11.1, when pulseaudio would have
been a bit more stable, in the view of having, for once, a good quality
release starting from the released day, and not six months later after a
lot of patches.

It works for 99% of the people,
and we have seen just 1 report about the bad performance, for which a
fix is under way ( ).

A lot of people, me included, is not testing it because we use virtual
machines, so we don't really know how it behaves on real hardware.

What's sure is that ubuntu is receiving a lot of complaints about
pulseaudio, and the benefits seem to be small to me too.

We have not seen 100s of reports about unhappy users, so if there is
anything that doesn't work for you, file bugs please, we will be doing
our best to fix all the issues, but as I said, so far, all the bug
reports are being fixed, and nobody, apart from you, at least that I
know, has complained much about PA.

PA is being used now in GNOME upstream, so we have been just following
the direction taken there.

True, but we don't always follow upstream for everything. We have
probably the most personalised and patched GNOME in openSUSE, with all
the advantages and disadvantages.

Anyway, PA is in. Let's hope it works well. We should just keep an eye
on it during the last phases of testing.
