I'm in the same situation, except I do reluctantly use Gentoo Linux at
home just so that I can run hydrogen, rosegarden and a few other useful
ALSA client apps.
I'm hoping one day that the Not-Invented-Here syndrome will go away and
other OS's don't have to track unnecessary and unportable APIs. Is it
just me or does ALSA actually offer non-trivial advantages over more
portable (OSS) sound interfaces? If so, I haven't seen them.
