    Re: Gparted vs Acronis, how's this possible?

    If it's cloning you want, then clonezilla would have been the better free tool to use.

    Have you tried using the Picard tagger from musicbrainz on your tracks? It's in the repos and will tag your files using the waveform.

    Re: Amarok in Ubuntu

    Looking good. Fullscreen crashes out on me as soon as I move the mouse though.

    Nice to see the ipod/mtp plugins in there. All we need now is a good radio plugin.
