5<para>The first question which people tend to ask about <acronym>ALSA</acronym>
6is why they should use it over the sound drivers included in the kernel&mdash;there
7are several reasons. First, the <acronym>ALSA</acronym> drivers support more
8sound cards than those in the kernel. Second, the <acronym>OSS</acronym>
9emulation is in some cases faster and better than the original <acronym>OSS
10</acronym> driver itself. And finally, there are some programs which can use
11<acronym>ALSA</acronym>'s enhanced features to better drive the sound card.

14<para><acronym>ALSA</acronym> is also the future of Linux Sound (hence the
15name <emphasis>Advanced Linux Sound Architecture</emphasis>). The <acronym>ALSA</acronym>
16drivers were included into the main Linux kernel during the 2.5 development series,
17and they are now the "standard" sound drivers in the 2.6 stable kernel.</para>

19<para>The following six sections of the book deal with the six separate
20components of <acronym>ALSA</acronym>: the drivers, the libraries, the
21utilities, the tools, the firmware and the <acronym>OSS</acronym> compatibility libraries.
