I would have preferred not to quote me with "It's a mess" in the title of the article. Makes me feel slightly comfortable, because not everything is that bad in audio on Linux, and this might give a too negative view of things and the work of quite a few people. It's the words I chose during my talk, but seeing it all over the 'net like this makes me wish I had chosen different words ;-)
Anyway, very informative article!
BTW: Adobe fixed the issues we pointed out to them in Flash 10. Flash 10 works fine with PA. Though it still sucks that Flash 10 is closed source and it takes so long to get things fixed due to that -- they do listen to us.
