Yes, I also suffered pain to get it working :(
I'm a real fan of linux and I'd never switch back from my beloved gentoo, 
but.. your point stands, windows makes many things 'just work'. (off topic: 
At last this is also because good drivers and support are driven for win, 
while oss people have to figure out a way to make things work themselfs :-/ )

I don't know what hardware you're using, but I guess - as many people suffer 
from it - there may be explicit help for your sound chip/card. Make dmix 
work, it's worth the effort!

(who has used -ao arts at most twice before he got cracy from sync issues..)
