Re: [TCLUG:4161] Another problem nixed (OSS?)

Off the subject of this thread a bit but I was wondering if you could tell
me what the advantages/disadvantages of using OSS are.  

I have a soundcard that I apparently can't get to work without upgrading my
kernel (Soundblaster PCI128 which is really a Ensoniq but Creative sells it
under the Soundblaster name.)  I thought I'd wait awhile  before I switch
to 2.2.  So I was going to pick up OSS but am I going to be able to do all
the normal stuff using OSS?
