Obviously you do not feel you need to read a post to respond to it. This "new
technology" is not all it seems - they promised seamless support for current
ALSA apps for one.

Twist my words as much as you like. You ignored the bit that said "doesn't suit
Wine's current needs". That means that winealsa doesn't work with Pulse's ALSA
layer through no fault of Wine.

The examples of cases where low-latency are required are off-topic. We don't
need to saturate this bug with more useless situations. Just that it is known
that low-latency is important is enough.

18740 was correctly marked a duplicate - twice - as there has been no attempt
improve winealsa to be more Pulse-friendly. As a result, there is no proof that
a driver is even required.

No loss of mine if you refuse to read my posts or *all of the rest of this

If anything, the problem is that there is no one actively maintaining the
current audio code, and no one even submitting patches to make winealsa more
