GNU, GPL, Open Source It's a simple equation. Results = Developers x Time; and for Songbird, it's not working out. Yesterday, they announced they will drop Linux support in favour of Windows, Mac and to meet plans to include video features in the next release. The comments are intensely angry, as you can imagine. An untested Linux version will be kept around "for use by our Songbird engineers who develop on the Linux platform".

Video support really bugs me... Specially on apps like winamp, which are clearly music player software.
I enjoyed a bit Songbird on Linux, but it is too slow, it just feels bloated. Tried Amarok, JuK and Rhythmbox, never really liked them either. I just end up using audacious again on the end of the day.

Sorry for the bad english ;)
