Persistent Pipewire Problems Pause Productivity

PipeWire on openSUSE

I was having some issues in openSUSE Tumbleweed where my audio devices would continue to be listed after being disconnected.

All-in on PipeWire for openSUSE Tumbleweed

PipeWire on openSUSE

I have written about using PipeWire previously where I did have a very positive experience with it. Unfortunately, I did have some irritating quarks with it that ultimately resulted in my going back to using PulseAudio on my openSUSE Tumbleweed machines.
