    Maybe you should update the post with the news that rhythmbox development is to cease with the release of 0.12.0.

    Songbird is written in... Well, that's hard to specify. Essentially, it's written in "Xul", the same language as Thunderbird and Firefox. The underlying Xulrunner engine is C++. Songbird also leverages GStreamer (C)

    i think you can rule out songbird. it's just too big. they use patched xulrunner thats not compatible with the one firefox uses so thats just too much space used. banshee would be a far better candidate.

    the other thing with Songbird is it doesn't have very good gtk integration by default.

    if Rhythmbox is slowing down in its development then banshee is the way to go, don't get caught up in what its written in, to the end user its meaning less.

    the thing with banshee is if the plugins from totem get ported over(dvb, youtube, bbc) we may be able to remove that too since banshee can do video as well as audio.

    listen has too many bugs right now but if the developers hurry up, then it would be great to have it by default

    Re: Future of Media in Karmic

    I guess we'll get Banshee by default in a release or two.

    Which is not that bad -- in fact it's shaping up quite well -- but right now has got a couple of showstoppers.

    First it doesn't support gapless playback, which is awful for listeners of Classical music (and I guess other genres with which I'm not familiar).

    Second, the initial collection indexing is way too much CPU intensive, and I didn't find a way to add music I have on disk without reindexing the whole collection, and risking to burn my CPU in the process...

    Ah... I guess music players is one of the fields that need a lot of love!

    IMO, Banshee has been better since the 1.0 release, so I'd welcome this change
    The mono argument is just silly: mono implements an open standard (CLI and C#...) just like gcc implements an open standard (C, C++). Just because Microsoft was the original author doesn't mean Mono is evil. Both mono and gcc are freely available...

    I never liked Rhytmbox
