Multimedia, AV Songbird, the open source iTunes alternative (which we reported on earlier), has landed a big deal with Philips. The Dutch electronics manufacturer will bundle Songbird with its GoGear line of .mp3 players as the music management and sync tool. While this is good news for Songbird, there are is a catch.

Right now, Microsoft, Apple, and the open source world do very little to make your computer work for you instead of against you. BFS-like queries are a magical ingredient which has never been used to its fullest potential...


There is an open source multi platform file manager that may eventually provide some of the functionality of BFS queries without BFS. Right now Union directories are being integrated. I know because I'm programming it.
