Linux "To be clear about this article's intent, it's not to bash Microsoft, or Windows. Because to be fair, despite using Linux 95% of the time while I'm on the PC, I can find more faults with it than Windows. So, this article's goal is to highlight some of the major pluses of Linux, and also showcase where Windows could improve in the future, should Microsoft take heed of the suggestions."

They've tried. nenolod even wrote the beginnings of an X-Fi driver by modifying emu10k1 back before Creative released theirs. The ALSA devs ignored him.

All in all, I see ALSA as hovering in the state XFree86 was in for ages (Broken and tied to a management "team" who worked as a boat anchor but still waiting for that one bit of stupidity that'll push things over the edge and cause a catastrophic fork)
