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.

I think it's largely a matter of taste / preference. FWIW, I'm in the same boat as you are - I'd much rather use small, best-of-breed applications that focus on a specific task. Most of my music is stored on a BeOS machine, using Tracker / BFS attributes for indexing/cataloguing, SoundPlay for playback, ArmyKnife for tagging, and the RipEnc script for ripping and encoding.

Although I can certainly see why someone would prefer an end-to-end solution that handles all of those tasks.
