Yes, cause that's what I use. Exaile and XMMS. I'd use AmaroK if I didn't want to keep my Xubuntu slim and without any KDE apps. On a more powerful box, sure I'd give AmaroK another shot.

I would go for amarok since I got tired of xmms a long time ago. Amarok is most probably the best I have played w/ yet.

Question WOT no Banshee?

I really like Banshee, but I guess Amarok comes real close

Xfmedia should have been there. It's the Xfce media player. Quite nice and fast.

I use XMMS alot, but the program I have enjoyed the most is called mp3blaster. It is a ncurses program that will play mp3's and maybe wav (it has been hit or miss, mostly miss, with that format). It is small and very efficient at what it does.

I voted for Amarok because it's big, has full optios but my computer works quite slow. I also use mocp Music on Console Player. It has quite goods ncurses interface.
