With a SBLive, you can have aRts, esd, ..., and multiple OSS programs running at

hardware multiplexing) is well worth the investment to spare you pains from the
incompatible-sound-systems syndrome Linux has been suffering from since ALSA and
sound daemons have appeared on the scene.
As a side note, that's also why I stick to OSS in my projects that involve sound
: it's universal, I'm still not convinced the ALSA API has stabilized (and it's
Linux-only), and sound daemons suck pond water with low-latency audio. OSS will
probably take even longer than Motif to disappear as a result ;-)
