If I was Red Hat CEO, I would fire GNOME designers, yesterday.

Actually, I'd get rid of Poettering first. He's the one who decided to turn the Linux audio situation from merely a pain in the ass into an incapable, high-latency farce. Then, as if he hadn't already done enough, he decides there's something wrong with the perfectly working init system and decides to screw that up by writing systemd, breaking every third-party product in the process.

Pulse latency was better than ALSA dmix last time I looked. And of course it has neat features like per-app volume control.

What are you comparing against? Direct hardware access to a SB Audigy 2? Of course if you have hardware mixing it is faster and you should use it.
