from my opinion, the pulsaudio needs engineers spend time on it to make it better.
Compare with windows, just the audio stop me to make Linux as my family OP. The video driver is a lot better than before ,special NVIDIA's driver. But the audio, it is so....
I hope more audio engineers join in the Linux project.
I am a developer in Linux, so, I love it and I hate it too. But we don't give up.
