xmms. worked on every distro.

mpg123 or 321 is the most handiest app ever. i wish there was a replacement for itunes. amarok is cluttered, slow, crappy and doesnt have that "feel" that itunes does.

I meant to vote Amarok....

...but the mouse went AWOL for a second and I voted Gstreamer. Amarok is a very good app, right up there with Firefox. It could eventually be the best audio app out there on any platform, just as firefox is the best browser (in my opinion at least).

It's got some catching up to do with foobar2000 imo.

Talking

mpg123. And for all of you idiots/trolls that say it's non-free, it got relicensed GPL, even though it internally still carries the old non-free license/copyright.

I've just emerged from some (elementary) command line adventures with mplayer and suddenly Amarok doesn't seem quite as snazzy. The GUI is ultra-busy. And compared with a few 'alias' commands in mplayer, Amarok seems a bit sluggish too.I still think its a great app though, not least because it will no doubt attract a lot of people like firefox did.

BTW Whens foobar gonna be on Linux?

I may not like KDE a lot, but when it comes to tunes and a killer app, that's gotta be AmaroK!!

Amarok for me. It has so many features (although I use it just for listening to music - its usually minimised all day as it trudges through the playlists).

Feel bad about not voting for audacity though - its served me very well in the past.
