After careful consideration, we’ve come to the painful conclusion that we should discontinue support for the Linux version of Songbird. Some of you may wonder how a company with deep roots in Open Source could drop Linux and we want you to know it isn’t without heartache. We have a small engineering team here at Songbird, and, more than ever, must stay very focused on a narrow set of priorities. Trying to deliver a raft of new features around all media types, and across a growing list of devices, we had to make some tough choices.
Well, you know what I say to that? You don’t want to support me; I will no longer support you.
My understanding is that they will continue to have a “version” that is available to Linux users; however, it will never receive feature additions. So what’s the use of it?
I was so happy with it for a long time. The path that they were on was looking so bright. But no longer…
I am currently on the market for a new music player. For the time being I will be using Rhythmbox. I have also heard that Banshee is a nice player. If anyone has ideas for what I should use, please let me know.
I do like having a playlist. Meaning players like mplayer and the ilk are out of the question.
