> ALSA is the more modern one and I should just focus on that.

While true for most people, it isn't *always* true for everyone.

I, for example, simply cannot use ALSA.

One of the things I do frequently is to rework DVD-Videos. I have a
set-top DVD recorder with which I record something off the TV onto a
DVD+RW. I then import the data onto the PC, clip the movie and boost the
audio a little, and then record onto a DVD+R, putting the DVD+RW back
into circulation for the next recording.

If I use ALSA, it introduces a 200ms delay in the sound channel. I can
compensate for that while multiplexing the audio and video back
together, but when playing back the resulting DVD on a set-top box the
sound is obviously advanced by 200ms WRT the image.

If, OTOH, I use OSS, what I get on the PC is what I get on the set-top
DVD player. OSS does not add this 200ms delay.
