Well, you need to be a little more exact.  ESX server does not
virtualize the host's audio device.  It's not correct to say it does
"not have audio support".  Guest operating systems can certainly install
audio drivers.  Indeed, drivers without hardware will work exactly the
same, whether they run with real hardware or in any of the VMware products.

don't understand why this would appear.
