The GNOME music player dilemmaAugust 29, 2006
Just like Loe I am having difficulty on deciding on a music player for Ubuntu. There are several options:
Right now, Exaile and Quod Libet aren't real options however.
Quod Libet's interface is WAY too confusing! You can adapt the interface to your personal needs but honestly I don't want to, I just want reasonable defaults.
Exaile's interface is just as horrible, although I must admit I am basing this solely on screenshots. It has vertical tabs for crying out loud! And I really, really hate vertical tabs! Furthermore I really don't fancy browsing through 3000+ FLAC's with a treeview.
All other options (Rhythmbox, Banshee, Muine and Listen) have some serious flaws as well but are applications I could see myself using despite their flaws. Just like Loe I will probably devote a blogpost containing pros and cons for each one of them (sorry for stealing your thunder, mate ;)).
