Pulse Audio is another broken Linux technology. It's still problematic even on latest distribution releases. On one machine I use I can either listen to music or play Flash on the web. Problem is, if I do one, I have to jump through hoops to get the other to work. The complaints regarding Pulse Audio are many and widespread. Search online for "pulse audio sucks" and see what you come up with.
