I beg to differ with you, as I have tried the latest version of Ubuntu and to my knowledge is one of the few who are using Pulse audio by default. I had constant issues with Pulse audio on Ubuntu, it may be the wave of the future but it certainly is not for the present. Until all of the various applications that use audio including all the various web plug-ins begin to use Pulse audio by default one will continue to experience intermittent problems with their audio experience on Linux. Thanks but no thanks, I am sure that Mint is a fine distro but because of their marriage to Ubuntu is not the distro for me.
I do appreciate you responding to my questions and I wish you the best.
