SO if someone could tell me what distro the developers use that does not use pulseaudio natively, i would be more than happy to use it. I just want the old gnome setup like 7.04 alsa only was.

I am not in any way a dev, hopefully someone else shares an opinion for 
you. I see a couple alternatives. You can go with a source based, 
build-it-into-what-you-want distro such as gentoo or arch and only put 
on your machine what you want it to have (such as an older version of 
gnome, or a gnome base made without pulse). Or you can pick a window 
manager other than gnome. I may be wrong, but I think any current gnome 
based distro will have pulse tightly built into it. I have not heard of 
a recent one that does not, but I also have not gone looking for one.
