Newbie: UNIX Sound Systems?
I only know of two sound systems when it comes to Linux: OSS, and ALSA
ALSA is the newer, better favored system, but is specifically tailored to Linux
OSS is older and is now commercial and proprietary... They have unique licenses for different OSes. For Linux, for example, the non-associated OSS/Free is available in the kernel packages... but then again the page has not been updated for 6 years and I come to wonder if the project is still under way
some operating systems... like NetBSD, it's available for non-commercial use...
But really, is there any decent sound system out there that is not propretary/commercial and is widely supported (or at least compatible) with (more or less) all Unicies + Linux out there?
