Gnome The GNOME team has released GNOME 2.26, the latest release in the 2.x release branch. As everyone knows, GNOME is a multi-platform open source desktop environment. The 2.26 release continues GNOME's policy of incremental updates to a stable base, and as such, it comes packed with a boatload of new features.

I think PulseAudio is a very good sound system. Although still not as stable as ALSA for the moment, the features are too compelling. I am able to switch to another sink while playing, I am able to integrate a ladspa equalizer, and I am able to silence some applications. Sounds good to me...

The problem is that in doing all of that they're forgetting that there are a bunch of people who don't know (or care) what ladspa means and simply want to plug in their headphones and listen to their MP3s and youtube videos.
