alsa software mixing
I was astounded today when my laptop was able to play a mp3 while I was
running a game with sound effects. I don't use esound; I do use alsa
with the snd-card-ymfpci module.
I didn't realize alsa did software mixing. This rules! Am I just
particularly lucky about the sound card in my laptop, or is this a
standard alsa feature for many cards?

 How ironic that would be, it was a bugger waiting for it to be
supported in alsa and then getting it working..
