I don't know what problems from dmix you encountered or what you've heard of - 
also I don't have knowledge of the internals (so I don't know what 'hack' 
you're talking about).. Dmix is making a huge difference for me, compared 
with other user space mixing apps like arts. I just don't notice it, I just 
don't have to care about it..
I quit windows for other reasons than sound mixing. Said, I don't know how MS 
accomplishes that sound mixing works that good without any manual 
configuartion even on soundchips that only support a single channel, and I 
don't care about it.. I really don't know what you meant with that abandon 
It works for me, so I thought I'd give a suggestion that would help others..
