[linux-audio-user] Great news for JACK & KDE

I am not necessarily interested in defending Artsd since I myself also
do not care much for it. What I can do is though explain that artsd
supposedly does a lot of other things that the KDE ppl seem interested
in. In other words, chances for us convincing them to switch strictly to
Jack are nil (tried before, as I'm sure some of you did as well, and
pretty much got nowhere). This way at least we get to have JACK as the
backbone of all servers and have KDE still with its architectural
solution intact.

I think it's great news, considering the alternatives.
