Fedora amazes me. It teaches me something new every day. The other
day, I learned that there are people on the surface of the planet who
would push ctrl-alt-bs accidentally. Now, I see that there are folks
who don't want full control over the capabilities of their hardware.

I would never have imagined hiding soundcard functionality could be
thought as an enhancement. My Audigy4 has even more controls than the
image that was posted. And I was glad to be able to fiddle with all of
them. Sure there are some controls that I don't need. But I can opt to
not display them in kmix.

But there is one thing that I miss. These controls used to be
classified in tabs. One tab was showing the output controls the other
was showing input controls etc. Does anyone know who/what made these
tabs disappear in kmix?
