Editorial Songbird is a new open-source music player that has this week landed at 1.0. Songbird is described as a "web player"- a music player for this modern, connected era. It blends the web-rendering core of Firefox (Gecko), with the media capabilities of GStreamer- a cross-platform, open-source media playback engine.

RE: iTunes for Linux

I have tested Songbird on windows, however to me, it just seems like a project to bring iTunes to Linux, although there is nothing wrong with that.

Perhaps, cuz it's going to be pretty useless as an iTunes replacement on Windows/OSX until/unless it can support iPods and iPhones, along with the iTunes Music Store (or a suitable replacement).

Don't get me wrong... I hate iTunes with a passion, but it seems to work rather well for the average Joe with an iPod.
