Pulse Audio is very mature and usable in Ubuntu 10.10, I recommend
using it if it works for you. But it tool some hard years to get to
that state, therefore PA has a very bad reputation.
I recommend that you just continue using Ubuntu 10.10 if that works
for the express purpose that that machine was intended for. If you
outgrow Ubuntu, you'll know!
