I’ve been searching for a while for a new mediaplayer in ubuntu. Currently I’m using xmms, but don’t really like it.
Amarok is good, but not gnome native. I think I have a look in the repositories later to find a new media player.
Anyway, good old mozilla corp. will bring out a new cross-platform media player. A thing any linux fan can only support.
Mozilla is known for quality, so I have every reason to suspect this will be the a killer media player and will kick amarok of it’s throne (at least in gnome).
There will be add-ons, themes and lots more you can change to fit songbird to your needs.
And the thing looks great too!
