I on the other hand think we should be more Cutting edge..
Follow upstream all the way to test3.
Release gold with upstream at test3!

Some might say it's to little time for proper testing..
Others might say true but then again our target audience is ?,
Certainly not regular Joe because then we would be where Ubuntu is now..

Then it's the issue to get everything to latest upstream and
get the ball rolling from there..

I have had no problem with Pulseaudio, rather apps that dont support
Pulseaudio or have it enabled by default, but since the choice is out
there I just use the ones that do..
