"Simply stated, all audio and video applications run more smoothly, and reading and writing of CDs and DVDs is faster. The increased system performance also enables substantially improved streaming of video and audio data. Thanks to the DMA mode, burning CDs and DVDs in Linux has become even faster. Additionally, the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA), which is spearheaded by SUSE, is now an integral component of kernel 2.6, delivering audio and MIDI functions in Linux. ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) ensures efficient power management, for example by extending the battery operation time of laptops."
