Thanks for the info. It's a HUGE help. I have no idea where I got the idea that Alsa was outdated but it's likely I read a post on a list like this (or even this one) from someone who seemed to know what they were saying.

ALSA replaced OSS, not the other way. ALSA has an OSS compatibility layer and it provides OSS to apps that haven't been transitioned. ALSA is the preferred system now. There are also several other intermediate layers that can be used between ALSA and an app, e.g., Pulse Audio.
