I wonder if that isn't a general GNU/Linux problem, and not just
Debian. e.g. I wonder if RedHat would be different.

Yes. Now that you mention it, Debian took a bit more effort to set up
sound than RedHat because RedHat ran sndconfig for me.
Hardware detection and configuration is important to getting Debian
(and GNU/Linux in general) usable to the general public. I know the
new Debian installer has some hardware detection, but I've never tried
it, so I don't know how good/extensive it is.
