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."

.. are there attempt to reach feature with ALSA and/or OSS4.1 .. instead of just thinking that its all good, is there some sort of ACID3 type test for sound/audio devices? I mean the developer of OSS is looking for a job[1], why not bring him on board one of those companies like Canonical or Nokia .. if those companies were really to take a look at the Linux landscape and be honest .. there are just too many incompatibilities in the Audio Visual realm.
