Gnome "One of the things that the GNOME design crew have been focusing on recently is creating a new approach to application design for GNOME 3. We want GNOME applications to be thoroughly modern, and we want them to be attractive and a delight to use. That means that we have to do application design differently to how we've done it in the past."

RE[4]: What a joke

I've never had any problem whatsoever with sound on KDE.

Put simply, it "just works".

Yeah right! Over the last few days I have tried both Linux Mint and Mepis. Guess what? Sound is broken on both of em. It's probably fine on a normal stereo setup "and I've never tried HDMI or Digital out" but analogue surround sound is broken badly! The only way you can get the subwoofer to work is manually switching between 5.1 and 7.1 or whatever while a track is playing, problem is once the current track finishes it kills the sub and you have to do it again!
This is on a X-fi card on my media system and a Auzentech card on my main system, both 5.1 analogue surround sound.
"It just works" MY ASS!

Have you tried filing a bug report?
