Linux Linux.FR has an interview with Lennart Poettering of PulseAudio and systemd fame (among others). Regarding PulseAudio: "I can understand why people were upset, but quite frankly we didn't really have another option than to push it into the distributions when we did. While PulseAudio certainly wasn't bug-free when the distributions picked it up the majority of issues were actually not in PulseAudio itself but simply in the audio drivers. PulseAudio's timer-based scheduling requires correct timing information supplied by the audio driver, and back then the drivers weren't really providing that. And that not because the drivers were really broken, but more because the hardware was, and the drivers just lacked the right set of work-arounds, quirks and fixes to compensate for it."

No, the BSD communities doesn't care about him at all or what Linux does with it's audio stack.
Sure, his "screw everyone who doesn't write code for Linux" attitude is annoying but in reality he really doesn't have all that much clout.

If BSD people doesn't care about him or Linux why do they come and spread their FUD here?

Jealous much?

You're hilarious, especially with your "BSD is archaic" spiel. Who's the one spreading FUD?

Maybe I shouldn't have said that, in which case I apologize. But really, when was the last time we have seen any significant progress in the BSDs?

Every time I see a Linux release there's tons of changes and progress, I haven't seen something similar in BSDs.
