As many of you already know, SuSE has entered into an interesting 5-year 
plan with Microsoft. You can find the details on Slashdot and 
elsewheres, so I won't rehash them here.

What isn't mentioned is the ALSA/SuSE connection. I'm pretty sure some 
of the ALSA developers read these lists, and I'd like to hear from them 
regarding the significance of their employer's new connections and 
ALSA's IP and its continued development. Is this marriage happy news for 
Linux sound or is it an unholy alliance signifying doom and destruction 
for the world at large (and not just the Linux audio community ;) ?

Or will things just cruise along in business-as-usual mode ?

Any and all insight vastly appreciated.
