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".

You are not alone. This news was foreseeable. They stopped adding new features for Linux a long time ago. Ok the CD-Ripping Support is in the Dev-Tree but the Windows Version has a stable release.

I can recommend Exaile for users with a GTK based Window Manager.

Songbird is now gone. I deleted every trace from my linux machine.
