Multimedia, AV Songbird, the open source iTunes alternative (which we reported on earlier), has landed a big deal with Philips. The Dutch electronics manufacturer will bundle Songbird with its GoGear line of .mp3 players as the music management and sync tool. While this is good news for Songbird, there are is a catch.

That was what sold me on it and Mediamonkey. I tried iTunes when I was looking at the time but it didn't allow the user to specify how directory structure and files where named. The iTunes library is a mashed mess on the hard drive that pretty much screws you for using anything but iTunes media management.
