So your parents need bleeding-edge ALSA sound capabilities?  My parents didn't 
even notice when I broke sound on their machine and I still haven't got 
around to fixing it...

I intentionally don't let my parents install anything on their machine.  When 
they need something installed I'll install it for them.  Making Fedora 
administration possible for the average office worker or the average child is 
worth-while, making it possible for the average 60yo is not going to work.
