Audio player like iTunes

Hey guys, I'm one of those 'nix users who is looking for a better way of computing than Microshaft. (and my laptop doesn't run winxp or 2k, and I won't put up with 98) So, I'm running slack now, but need a good audio player to work with. iTunes is posisbly the greatest audio player for any system, but I want something like it for linux. I have tried juk, xmms and totem. What I want it something that has a good library-type layout. All I need is basic play control, and a way to view all my music like itunes does. Thanx, -Bill

I agree, amaroK is the best around. However if you really want iTunes (why would u want that :P), you can get Jon Lech Johansen's pymusique.
