PulseAudio works as well perfectly fine for a wide range of users. It works
perfectly fine with all the fine applications that support it. Naturally it
does not work as good with Wine and that is exactly that this BUG is here. This
bug in Wine of not supporting PulseAudio.

Please don't be silly. Yes, there are thousands of Linux distros. But: 1) by
the number of users the ones I named constitute an overwhelming majority of
desktop users, 2) I've done the research before: over 90% of all Linux distros
are derivative distros from either Debian/Ubuntu or Fedora. With over 60%
falling in Debian/Ubuntu camp. And those have pulseaudio. So, as I said before
- by any metric, PulseAudio is there by default in the overwhelming majority of
desktop Linux distributions today.
