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.

I'll admit I didn't like your initial review. I thought it would get better. It hasn't. Its slow, not very smart, focused on appearance rather than performance, a bad memory hog. I've stopped using it.

The one thing I do like, and would love to see in another media player is the general (default basic UI design). I like the old Music match library/playlist interface. I spent a day or two kicking around the source, trying to make a small, small change to it. The xul nature of its UI, makes everything more difficult than it should be for the sake of ui flexibility. I know some people obviously love xul, its just not my preference.
