i don't like the new versions of either amarok, nor XMMS. Amarok 1.2 and XMMS 1 still rock.

Yeah I'm with a few others. Use VLC on all machines for both audio and video playback. Including windows boxes. I'm not a fan of Media Library Management that seemingly does not work properly. I'd rather just point and play rather than spend 10-100 minutes trying to find out why one of 28792 tracks is not showing up in the library. And that goes for Itunes and windows Media Player as well...both crap. VLC FTW. So not voting on this one.

The 1.x line for amarok was a ton better than the 2.x line, so I'll have to go with songbird (even though I have an iPod touch and have to resort to using iTunes in windows)

Me too, since it actually supports pretty much every format of audio and video, and works well enough. So, please add mplayer

And it got my vote. Thanks. It's fairly unknown but I'd say it's the best thing since sliced bread.
