Re: Hardy 8.04 & OSS4 (Alternative to ALSA)
The blog is about a year old. Since that time, I believe all of OSS is now GPL'd except for some non-Linux stuff (BSD, Solaris & other Unix OS's) and a select few modules whose vendors still have NDA's with 4front.
It did on my sound card (M-Audio Revolution). If your sound works properly, I would not recommend that you switch at this time. But I do think you'll like the upcoming release of OSS 4.1. If you decide to switch, I would recommend using the Mercurial repo version rather than a .deb package because the HD Audio modules have had a lot of work put into them for the new build.
What I really want to know is: will OSS4 give better sound with than ALSA?

I'm currently attending school for certifications and working full-time, so I won't have much time to be on here.
