definately missing MPD/MPC, great daemon/client for playing music in the background, works really well with keybinds. I was using XMMS until I found out about MPD, it uses alot less reources then XMMS (xmms = 3-5% cpu, MPD = 0-1%) and doesnt ever crash when you have playlists of over 6k songs. Also supports many, many formats.

Don't forget a category music with tools as ardour, rosegarden, ecamegapedal, jack and so on.

For me Agnula/Demudi is the best, but it is not in this list. I was thinking at linux was about choice and it is no "other" option in this list to add what is the best software for us, if it is not allready listed.

Amarok is the best

XMMS is just another version of winamp. Amarok has a great interface and it can play just everything even WMA's. it intergrates with K3B very well for burnning your music directlly from the player. it can bulid a library for your music folders and it has a great internet connection with WIKIPEDIA for lyrics and Artisis information. i wonder if AMAROK developers are thinking about adding Video codecs for it and it will be the Master Linux Application for playing MultiMedia files

Audacity - mainly because it is available for pretty much all OSs. I wonder why Qucktime is not available for linux.

I would have voted BMP, if it weren't due to the lack of support for LastFM plugin, which causes the app to crash. I use it with AmaroK without a hitch.

Amen to that! It's been around for years and is still going strong. I've tried countless audio players and I junked them all except XMMS. Can't beat it.
