why ubuntu does not preview the mp3 files as albumart like windows does in thumbnails mode ???
is there a simple way to do that in ubuntu?

I think it's different due to a few factors.
When album art is included in the music folder you will notice that it stays seperate. The reason why a music player for example doesn't do this is because it links the album art to the music.
Considering the file is only there to list the music and to show what type of file it is, it does well.

Unless they were to link the files with the artwork, there is no other way to my knowledge, but please, if anyone knows different, say so
