Please don't forget that hardware mixing... is more than just mixing. Modern audio hardware can offload sample rate conversion, attenuation, 3D processing, and other goodies.

Interesting in which parallel universe you must be living.

Modern audio hardware is usually locked to a specific sample rate, got
rid of all mixer controls by going to 24bit and letting the CPU
attenuate using the 8bit extra headroom. And 3d processing, and other
"goodies" aren't avilable in newer hw designs anymore either. In fact
haven't been available since quite some time in any design
anymore. (With the excption of those creative cards)

bzzt, sorry, thanks for playing.

The world has more to offer than 2005-era motherboard audio locked at 48K.

If you keeping bringing up Microsoft as a shining example, it might behoove you examine how DirectSound has evolved for modern audio.
