I've known Linus for thirty years and he has never produced or treated
anyone ever like Pottering or forced anyone or coerced anyone ever to
use his software.

Aside from that, Linux actually works.

But what does that have to do with the point?  Anyone who installs and
runs pulseaudio is frankly blind and an idiot.  It is fat, broken, and a
security hole and makes desktops crash.  But if you want to use it, go
ahead.  Just don't force that crap on me.

I don't chose to use it and I resent firefox breaking perfectly working
audio to coerce me to use it.

Firefox is now a dead end.
