I've only used Pulseaudio in the context of a review of media players 
for Ubuntu 8.04. At that time and for that purpose it performed fine, 
but I don't know how it interoperates with JACK or other servers. AFAIK 
you can remove it, but you'll probably find that it's a dependency for 
many other apps. Boo-hiss for that factor. :(

I'm learmning about Ubuntu 8.10 now as a matter of necessity. So far so 
good, but I've yet to muck about with the Pulseaudio stuff. Nothing 
against the software itself, but I don't need it, don't want it, and 
would like to cleanly remove it.
