You're just lucky. In my experience pulseaudio is enough to turn any machine into a never-ending source of audio problems. I've learned how to get back to a functional sound system when it messes up, but having to do this every 3rd or 4th time I suspend or reboot is way past being fun. Full screen flash works on my laptop screen, but using it on a large monitor tends to lock up the video (various generations of integrated Intel chips) requiring a full reset. I don't see how you can blame Flash problems on the distro, and I don't think any of this can be attributed to hardware problems. Just two examples of really poor software quality, one from each side of the free/closed divide. We suffer either way.
