I dream about the day when I’ll be able to move audio streams live between my 5.1 sound system and headphones without restarting apps.
I dream about the day when I’ll be able to use 2 laptops to emulate dolby surround by setting one laptop as a front speakers and another as rare speakers.
I dream about the day when I’ll be able to make browser not play sounds (flash ads!) while Amarok is loud. Until Skype is calling of course, when Amarok goes down to 5% 🙂
PulseAudio promises that, and I’m happy my next Ubuntu will go this path.
