Linux Linux is struggling on the desktop because it only has a small number of "great" apps, according to the Gnome co-creator. Miguel de Icaza, co-creator of the Gnome desktop, told tech journalist Tim Anderson at the recent Windows 8 Build conference "When you count how many great desktop apps there are on Linux, you can probably name 10," de Icaza said, according to a post on Anderson's IT Writing blog. "You work really hard, you can probably name 20. We've managed to p*** off developers every step of the way, breaking APIs all the time."

But have you guys ever tried foobar2000 on Windows?


I agree completely. It's easily the best player on Windows, and even with a few glitches, I'd still rate Foobar2000 + WINE as by far the best player on Linux too.

I've tried pretty much every Linux player available, but Amarok and the rest aren't even in the same league.
