    I will use totem/parole anyways.

    I really don't like playlist-based players.

    They have already lost respect by many if you see in the comments.Ditched it months ago,never saw a player as bloated as Songbird.

    Well the Songbird team can go take a hike as far as I am concerned.

    WTH are they thinking? in that blog post of theirs they gave absolutely no valid reasons whatsoever for stopping the linux counterpart of the app.

    i fell really disgusted. being an open source software, it really makes no sense whatsoever to ditch the most open source friendly platform for proprietary/closed source ones.

    i feel like removing songbird right now and switching to rhythmbox. what a shame.

    I don't Songbird myself (I couldn't get Flash to work) but I'm sad to see them giving up on Linux.

    Bad for them. Seems to be a stupid move.

    Like a guy on the blog said:

    Almost all mac users use Itunes, and they keep the mac port and get rid of the linux port?!?


    It´s the dumbest move in FOSS i have seen

    I think this is totally retarted. I never did like Songbird much, but this is the final straw.
