    I use amaroK, even in gnome. It sorts all my music files and looks great. The only complaint I have is that it can be a bit heavy on my meager system resources

    I quite like Quod Libet, the only problem is that it takes anywhere up to half an hour to open on my networked laptop while it refreshes the library. I'm wondering why it isn't possible to just pickle the old library locally, but I can't be bothered to pick through the code

    I used Amarok on the same laptop under Mandrake and found it unusably buggy. It would randomly decide to dump my entire library into the playlist, since that's around 15,000 tracks, the interface would just lock for the same half hour. Once it had finished playing the current track, it would skip to the first track in its new, huge playlist. I got sick and bloody tired of hearing the first track from !!!'s album.

    I keep meaning to get Foobar 2000 working under Wine because, basically, it's the world's best music player. I forget how to set ALSA up though, and all my music is on an NTFS drive which might cause problems because Foobar does a lot of on-the-fly tag updating.

    amaroK. It's worth installing the KDE libs for if you like all-in-one players.

    (And contrary to the poster above, I've never had any major bugs.)

    Like the image viewer applications, I haven't found one of those "index all your stuff" applications that even worked, much less that worked well. It seems they are all designed for someone who has only at most a few hundred files.

    I still use xmms for music because everything else insists on inserting gaps between all the songs. It reminds me of my youth trying to enjoy Dark Side Of The Moon on my 8-track player; us..us..us.. and them... them... them... and in the kah-thunk! end it's not what we would choose... to do...

    JuK--it's nice and lightweight (starts up quickly and is very responsive).

    P.S. Does anyone mind if I tack a poll onto this thread?

    Muine. It has a clean interface and works well with how I listen to music. I can even add an album from the tray icon

    As for non library-based players... hm... totem, because it's default, works well enough and I'm lazy. ^^;;
