Well, you make a point, but it does not excuse introduction of a half-baked soft in all linux distros. A simple ALSA patch should do the trick. And if pulse is really needed (which I heavily doubt), then it should be stabilized before introduction.

Stabilization without introduction is idealistic but not practical with the current model. Things that work well in a test environment even with a large QA team would have problems in the real world due to the enormous amount of variations in hardware for something as fundamental as a sound system. It is impossible that progress in such cases will be linear.

Every single change in potentially disruptive and free software development is based on rapid releases and quick iterations to gain maturity over time. That doesn't mean that things cannot be improved. For ex: more test cases can help.

Well... Actually, Pulse's problem is fairly simple AFAIK : it does not grab the right output among the available alsa channels, and does not provide the option to use another one, though it sounds available in the GUI.

Question is : why can just about every single piece of software except pulseaudio find out how to use the right output channel ?
