PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Just before Christmas Songbird 1.4.0 was released, and a new fix versions was released today as 1.4.3. Songbird now supports MSC storage devices and CD ripping, bringing the app one step closer to replacing iTunes for some users. What's particularly interesting is that Songbird now specifically pushes their product against users of Android, Nokia and Palm smartphones -- which is something I also suggested a few months too. Hopefully Google, Nokia, and Palm will get behind the small team in San Francisco to help out the cause, since it's also on their best interest too.

I don't like songbird because it's slow and bloated.
I find Foobar2000 as best audio player software avabile for Windows.
Lightweight but still very powerful app with clean UI.

I have to agree. I never really liked Songbird all that much. It always choked when imported my media library.

For windows, I use:

mediamonkey - works great with large libraries
foobar2000 - anything local on my laptop

For linux, I use:

amarok 1.4.10 - large external library
banshee - local library..
