According to Wikipedia, "PulseAudio runs under Microsoft Windows".
Does it work with Audacity (on Windows)?
Has anybody tried?
*PulseAudio* (formerly *PolypAudio*) is a
networked sound server <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sound_server> project.
It is intended to be an improved drop-in replacement for the Enlightened
Sound Daemon <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enlightened_Sound_Daemon> (ESD).
PulseAudio runs under Microsoft

Fedora led the way in incorporating PulseAudio before it was ready, breaking
audio for thousands of users. Then because open source is about copying good
ideas and bad ones, a ton of other distros adopted it as well. Amazing guys.
In a way, you've spread bad code that breaks audio on thousands of computers
faster than a virus could have. And it's immune to antivirus!
...And thus unfolds another chapter in long history of failed sound systems
on Linux. Can they make it much worse? I, for one, am excited to see how
much worse they can make it until we all go back to listening to square
waves on our PC speakers.

Advocates of “free software” often talk about “free beer” and “freedom of
speech”. *Have you ever heard anybody talking about “freedom of choice”.* In
the current situation there is very limited freedom of choice in Linux. You
can (if you can) do this and that with Linux and the software installed
under it. However this appears to be very difficult when compared to so
callec “closed” operating systems like Windows or MacOS.
