Here, a FOSS game that's based on Battlestar Galactica and actually seems to be amazingly high quality. http://www.ubuntuvibes.com/2012/09/b...-diaspora.html

For the most part the issues have been wonky defaults, an internal mic not being recognized, and audio input ports not working. My current issue is when I am using headphones all the sounded picked up by my laptops internal mic is echoed, but not when I am using the speakers (on LMDE).

i would suggest it since most server processors such as Xeons and Opterons don't include multimedia extensions like 3DNow, SSE, MMX, etc etc. they're more geared toward the actual PROCESSING of data(rendering, encoding of video/audio), as opposed to the PRESENTATION of data(playback of a rendered scene, playback of video/audio)...

Linux audio: http://www.pc-freak.net/images/linux...ss-picture.png

I agree. It gives the impression that you need to consider all of those options for Linux audio. In the vast majority of cases the audio pipeline is application (plus whatever libraries/framework it needs) -> Pulseaudio -> ALSA -> hardware. That's it.

And even if that weren't true, some of those parts are just absurd... I mean, OpenAL outputting to SDL? Really? And what are half of those frameworks even, I'm an audio dev and I don't even recognize a large amount of those, much less come across them.
