If this thread makes you so @$#%@%$#%^@, simply ignore
it !

The only difference is : there is no raison to unplug 
INTERNAL speakers ...

... but there is many raisons to have nothing
connected to ttya after bootup : the most obvious one
is to save space. Many peoples use switch to have only
one terminal acting as console for many systems and if
the terminal is switched to another thing ...
An other obvious raison is some people (like myself)
use another machine as console which is not always on

It's not so hard to understand !!!!

Anyway, using audio device doesn't need any priviliged
access. Using console may need root access whish
should be considered as a security hole ...

Now, I sugest you to go outside, to see the "real
word", the birds, the sun, to make a smill to your
wife/girlfriend ... perasp you next post will be more
friendly w/ other people !
