  Yeah - to some extent. But he seems to be a victim of the 
marketing-"the user is dumb - let us not distrub him with too many 
choice"-philosophy that gains more and more influence on the 
Desktop-concept of Ubuntu.

In Ubuntu 7.10 I have xinelib built with jack enabeled so I can run 
jackd 24/7 whithout a need to disable it if I want to see a video or 
whatever non-music-making thing I like ....

But Ubuntu Intrepid still does not offer the jackd-plugin for xinelib 
and the one for pulseaudio is not to be found also so I will switch back 
to Suse I guess - after 2.5 years of using Ubuntu and 64Studio
