What's Up With Intel
I, too, have experienced problems with sound chipset support. That's why I keep in stock an $8 generic 5.1 sound card.
I've been installing Linux in commercial settings since 1995. I've learned that not everything works with Linux, and that the answer is to work around the problems.
If I were Fred Langa, I'd be asking Intel why it provides such poor Linux support for its Wi-Fi and sound gear. Intel and Microsoft enjoy a love-hate relationship, a rocky marriage based on public threats and private beatings. Why would Intel, a member of the Open Source Development Labs, hold back on the open-source community?
