Amarok

amarok.pngThere’s a perception that compared with Mac OSX or Windows, Linux multimedia desktop applications tend to be less “slick”. If you think so, you use Linux and you enjoy music, Amarok will make you think again.

It looks great, is easy to use and has a wide range of useful and fun features. A few of my favourites: fetch lyrics for current track from Lyrc, grab band information from Wikipedia, connect to a heap of streams (Shoutcast, podcasts, Last.fm), integrated K3B CD burn, plus all the usual tools for compiling playlists and organising your local files.

    I Like Amarok a lot now as well. I Think it has improved a lot in the last couple of years too. Integration with Last.fm, cd cover grabber, and an automatic rating system to figure out what you like based on what you play are all great features imo.
