I believe that the linux folks are switching slowly but surely to Alsa.
Granted, they've got the sense of a flock of penguins, but so many penguins
may be right.
... My laptop has got a Yamaha OPL/SA3, natively supported by OpenBSD in
16 bit mode, NOT recognized correctly by the free version of OSS under Linux,
the dumb beast makes so many picky tests it can't find one of a bazillion of
drivers to make it work, whereas OpenBSD is a happy camper with the
simple-minded wss; ok, it might not recognize everything about the card,
but it's still better than a SB-compatible in 8 bit mode, which is all OSS
gives me (unless I fork off some bucks, of course).
