I dunno, I have no problems with Intel HDA. In fact, on my new laptop, a Compaq Presario V3770TU, Ubuntu supports it's Intel HDA (Conexant SmartAudio 221) out of the box while there are no working drivers for it in XP at all. It also worked fine on my previous Fujitsu Lifebook.

It might look like it works because PulseAudio provides it's own mixer. I do not like to beta test software so I have removed it and noticed that I'm left without any working way to control volume.

It probably doesn't apply to a noticeable fraction of Intel HDA users but since it's a very popular integrated audio solution this might potentially affect a lot of users.
