What is harder ? Bring ALSA API to the same level of functionalities as
OSS provides or port (FOSS) ALSA device drivers to OSS ?

You are loosing point lack of will ALSA developers to make this useable,
and well documented. OSS it is stabkle API specyfication with good
reputation. ALSA still is in development stage.

OSS is at all misdesigned ? or in some points ? if partialy it was bad (in
time start work on ALSA) why was not improved ?
For me it looks like ALSA developers don't know "don't move - improve"
sentence.

PS. /me still waiting for simple yes or no answer on my qustion from
responsible people.
For example: if Hannu or other OSS developer will bring some patches it
will be integrated or not in main tree ?
