That is true even in jessie.  It is similar to libsystemd0 that it really doesn't do anything if pulseaudio is not installed but it is a cosmetic/mental annoyance.

Oh oh, okay. The other day I had he sudden realization that I had sound in Firefox even though I was sure I didn't have pulseaudio, but found I had libpulse0. So does that mean that firefox-esr on ascii, a least, is compiled without pulseaudio being required?

Very odd overview of the distro. Personally, my process through the netinstall was pretty much indistinguishable from Debian's. So maybe he should use that like a normal person. But, if the installer from the live environment specifically is a bit janky like that, maybe it does have to be changed to be a little more foolproof. Still, he shouldn't be doing these reviews through a VM and seems to be oblivious to a few things that typical GNU/Linux users would be familiar with.

To amend the Tablet PC problem, I installed the updated xserver-xorg-core from Ceres and installed the wacom driver, and it tablet now works without the startup delay. So I guess I did something wrong with regular Debian when I tried this before. But yes, good news if you have the Wacom delay problem!

I have a Libreboot ThinkPad X60 Tablet, and this is be the problem for me - … bug=863532. Basically, it's looking for the Wacom digitizer for 4+ minutes because seconds instead of milliseconds. And, it does this every time you log out. So, not okay.

Removing xserver-xorg-input-wacom lets you boot up fastly like normal, but you lose your Wacom input, of course. So, gotta wait out a fix. Oh well! Unsure if it's fixed in backports or Buster like someone says there, but I tried that and also upgraded to Debian Sid a few weeks ago and it still hung. I've tried various distros since I've got my X60t and it's a problem on others as well.
