Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu De kogel is door de kerk. After years of focussing entirely on Gtk+ and GNOME, Ubuntu will finally start evaluating Qt applications for inclusion in the defaukt Ubuntu installation. Mark Shuttleworth announced the policy change on his blog today.

Banshee becomes Ubuntu 11.04 default music player


Banshee is a music player. Not a media player. Replacing Banshee with VLC or similar as you suggested would be retarded.

This says "media player".

Replacing Banshee with Clementine seems quite OK though.

Yeah, it still is clearly a music player/manager, which you should have been able to tell even from the damn thumbnail image.

That I don't take any stance on, I don't like either Qt or Mono apps.

No amount of theme engine is going to make Clementine look anything like a regular GNOME/Ubuntu app. Sure, it's powerful, but it's also a cluttered mess.

How is clementine cluttered? Serious question, not looking for flames. It's a simple two-pane layout with the library on one side and the playlist on the other. (Or have I configured it that way? Can't recall, it's been a couple months since I installed it; I just play music with it.)
