Yes, I know. That's not exactly what I meant. I guess I should have worded that better. I should have said "So for Wine to drop support for the only workaround for PulseAudio that worked..."

Basically, if I can't use the ESD driver, I can't use PulseAudio with Wine. If I can't use PulseAudio, my user experience with Wine on Ubuntu/Mint is worsened because I can't nicely fall back to alsa. That's what I meant.

Now, if they are reworking the audio code, maybe things will eventually improve. I can be patient. It was just abrupt and frustrating to not know what was going on and why.
