LXer: Exaile Ė The First Linux Media Player I Donít Hate

Published at LXer:

Anyone who knows me will have heard me rant about the poor state of music software, particularly for Linux. There seem to be two types of music players out there: the tiny ones that donít get in your way but often lack important playlist features or format support, and the monstrous software beasts that drag your system to a halt and insist on ďimportingĒ the files youíve already organized. I had been stewing over this for years, and nearing the point of writing my own, when I found Exaile Ė a GTK music program originally modeled after KDEís Amarok. This may be the first music player since Winamp 2.95 that I donít despise, and hereís why.
