But it's so tempting to use the volume slider in Rhythmbox ;)
Now that you have convinced me to some degree about that the device
volume should be the usual volume to adjust, I guess my biggest problem
are the volume sliders in individual applications. I believe they cause
problems/inconveniences for many users (I'm going here solely by my own
intuition; I don't remember hearing any actual complaints).
Do you possibly have the opinion that applications should get rid of the
volume sliders, or make them control the device volume?
