Ubuntu Finally Fixed Audio In 8.10

The main thing I hated about Ubuntu was the fact that I could only have one application using sound at a time. I’ve been using 8.10 for a week now and I just noticed that I was watching YouTube videos in Firefox and listening to music with Totem at the same time, something I’ve never been able to do in previous versions of Ubuntu. It’s one of those things that is so important in an OS that most people don’t even notice it until it’s gone. I hadn’t even noticed it was fixed until a week after I should have noticed, after all. So if you haven’t made the switch to 8.10 and multiple applications using sound simultaenously is important to you, I would suggest upgrading.
