Linux I have so much to thank Bill Gates for: introducing me to the baffling joys of consumer computing with Windows 95; teaching me the meaning of fear and dread with Windows 98; leading me to the sunlit uplands of Windows XP; getting me out of Microsoft altogether with the arrival of Vista. I hardly know where to start. And if I hadn't flown into a high-minded anti-Microsoft, down-with-Bill-Gates fury at the start of this year, would I ever have stumbled upon ZenWalk? I doubt it.

To the author: yes, default Audacious is ugly, but you can use Winamp themes on it. Helps a lot. Just drag 'n drop into the themes list in preferences.

re: dagw
Yes, you can use Slackware 11 packages. I've been using Zenwalk since before it was called Zenwalk and it's always accepted Linuxpackages.net packages nicely.

That depends on what you want. Some people just want a little something that plays music, and something like Audacious is just right for them. Some people want a music library, and so Amarok is the thing.

It has a lot to do with personal taste. People develop a very personal relation with their music, and it shows in their choice of a player.
