This question doesn't suit this category. To listen, I use XMMS. To edit, I use Audacity. Perhaps your question should have been, "What is your overall favorite audio multimedia application?" Otherwise, there should be two categories.

I used to be an xmms-ie but I was never really happy with it since I was used to media libraries ala Winamp 5+ and Media Player. However I didn't have or knew another option so I stayed with it...until Amarok came.
IT ROCKS!
Media Library - Automatic Taggins- Music Suggestions - LYRICS! - Album Covers...the works.
I don't think I'll ever be able to look at any other music player again....

AmaroK ... it's new ... and it has nothing to do with the traditional players like xmms, winamp, amigaamp .... It's something completely different and saves a lot of time and trouble making playlists and choosing songs to play! I've never needed to browse through my HD dirs looking for music again! It's all in a great SQLite database, separated into a nice list, just ready for me to drag and drop!!! Yeahh, Drag & Drop ... something I use since I had my Amiga 500, something that some windows users still can't understand!

It's so easy to use ... and such a good experience!! Great Work! I think it's the best music player I've ever encountered!! Superb!! All the other players are centuries behind!!

I'm surprised.
Many people have yet to try amarok it seems
</fanboy>

(Edit: thats weird I could see the result but now I cant.)
Anyway I predict 314 votes for amarok lol
