I don't use Spotify or any other streaming platform for listening to music. Some call it old habits, some call it needless effort, but I'm very used to downloading MP3 files over the internet and putting them in a folder on my phone then using the whatever default media player I have installed.

sysctl is a simple and great tool for modifying the kernel parameters. It does its job very well by providing an easy-to-use interface for
