AFAIK OSS doesn't provide SW mixing. ESD does. 

Given situation I have OSS-only capable audiocard and I want to use SW
mixing, ESD over OSS is an option for me to hear mixed audio streams
from several applications (mp3 as background and sounds from a game,
from example).

Correct me if I'm wrong :)
