I also use dedicated machines for my DAW systems, with no PA installed. All
audio is working with jack.

My DAWs seldom connect to the internet so I don't have a heavyweight web
browser (or many other desktop-type programs for that matter) installed.

I actually dislike modern desktop Linux so much I switched my 'office'
system to OpenBSD some time ago. That uses sndio (much simpler than PA)
for browser audio.
