And what makes you think I (we) never tried? Fedora is going to make
its 6th release with pulseaudio next week and pulseaudio is still
fundamentally buggy. I really don't want to talk about the hours I
spent on pulseaudio. Did you ever file a bug to pulseaudio? Or did you
try to reason with its developer? I did. Yes, I was stupid. But when
pulseaudio started crashing my wife's computer, and destroying her
hdd, I figured that it was time to react.
Me and many people in Fedora who are dealing with audio are willing to
drop pulseaudio, at least make it non-default. It is a waste of time
and resources to enforce some mobile device company's buggy toy on
Linux desktop users. Unfortunately for the time being, the steering
committee of Fedora does not contain enough people with audio
knowledge to make such a decision.
I am working at Fedora but that does not mean that I support
everything we do. It is a large community and like in all large
communities, we have disagreements. After all these years of
education, I can't promote stupidity. Sorry.
