10 One word:
12 arts
14 It's an abomination that should not be suffered to live. Disable it,
15 switch it off, consign it to hell for all eternity.
17 The only reason arts even exists at all is that in days gone by the
18 hardware could not mix several signals into one by itself, so sound
19 servers were written to do this then present one big sound stream to
20 alsa. These days alsa does the job by itself without needing arts.
