Linux Lennart Poettering, creator of open source sound server PulseAudio, was recently interviewed at this year's Linux Plumbers Conference. In this Q&A he details the latest PulseAudio developments and addresses some of PA's critics. Thanks to PulseAudio, the Linux audio experience is becoming more context-aware. For example, if a video is running in one application the system should now automatically reduce the volume of everything else and increase it when the video is finished.

I've mentioned this before, but it's worth mentioning again: most of the problems that people have with pulse are configuration issues with the way distros ship.

I think pulse audio is a great thing... I just think most distros shipped it before they actually knew how to set it up properly.
