Linux PulseAudio 0.9.15 has been released with many new features. Phoronix covers the changes: "PulseAudio 0.9.15 introduces native support of Bluetooth audio devices using BlueZ, Apple Airport Express support, flat volume support (similar to Vista's audio controls), on-the-fly reconfiguration of audio devices, and native support for 24-bit samples. The on-the-fly reconfiguration of audio devices is great and as a result there is now proper S/PDIF support. With the release of PulseAudio 0.9.15 also comes an update to the PulseAudio Volume Control program. The PulseAudio Volume Control 0.9.8 update brings support for configuring sound card profiles and various other updates."

PulseAudio only serves to fix a problem which was never there and break everything in the process.
PulseAudio introduces extra latency and how anyone in their right mind would want to do that just to get no additional functionality whatsoever (except maybe separate volume controls for applications, which OSS4 already has) is beyond me.
