Linux With Linux on the desktop going from a slow crawl to verging on an explosion, many have toiled with the question: How do we make this happen faster? A well-known Austin-based Linux Advocate thinks he has the answer.

Another killer Linux app is Amarok.
Anyway, Amarok, simply the best music application on any platform. Can't be beat.

I don't really think it's such a "killer app". There are a whole range of good audio players for Linux. I personally like Rhythmbox the best. On Mac I would use iTunes. On my XP installation I also use iTunes but only because Rhythmbox isn't available and I don't know of any good similar Windows apps (and whoever is reading this, please, don't suggest anything resembling Winamp cos I just don't like those at all). Anyways, my case is just a good example here for why I consider porting apps to Windows A Good Thing (TM): I can then use familiar and high-quality apps under Windows too whenever the need arises for me to boot into Windows. That's why I find the suggestion of stopping porting apps to Windows inherently annoying: I am forced to boot to Windows from time to time anyway but then I would also be forced to turn to Windows-only apps cos the apps I would like to use are no longer available.
