So Gnome Volume Control has got to be one of the worst programs ever. There are more than 130 volume controls just for Sound Blaster Live! [Alsa Mixer]. What the hell do I really care about all those volume controls? And why is sound always turned down to zero in software every time I boot? The saving grace is that the program does seem to work. Please, if you work on Desktop apps, take a more minimalist approach or at least make all that extra detail something you don't have to see by default, thanks.
