Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just like Eugenia yesterday, I also upgraded my laptop's Ubuntu Feisty installation to Gutsy a few days ago. The upgrade process went completely awry, though, so I was forced to do a fresh install. Not a bad thing, as it gave me the opportunity to take a look at Ubuntu's soon-to-be-released Gutsy Gibbon with GNOME 2.20

Feature-wise, what beats Amarok on Linux? Not trolling, it's a serious question: if there's a better alternative, I want to know it. ;)

Those are nice, but not as complete as Amarok. But if you want a more basic music player, JuK is an excellent choice, and so is Listen.
