Perhaps a better analogy would be 3DO to Atari.  Pulseaudio has a really 
cool design, but arts actually makes noise come out of my speakers. 
After dozens of F8 installs on 5 different machines, I have completely 
given up on getting sound to work with KDE.  If I want sound, I have F7 
and my old Mac.  I imagine Ubuntu would work fine as well.

Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled that the Gnome developers are pushing 
ahead with all this neat stuff, but I wish they'd just let KDE be KDE if 
they're not even going to bother testing it.  Every Red Hat/Fedora 
release since Red Hat 9 has had glaring KDE bugs not found in any other
