Windows Yes, the Windows 8 rumour mill is really spinning up now. This time around though, they're not really rumours, since the information is coming from Rafael Rivera and Paul Thurrott, long-time Microsoft enthusiasts with loads of insider access. They've got a bunch of screenshots showing a work in progress of... A ribbon in Explorer. And yes, it looks just as bad as it sounds.

I'm a picky bastard, that's my problem. I like Amarok and Clementine and I can't find anything like those on Windows.

Can't help you there indeed, these are not my cup of tea.

Maybe the KDE on Windows packages might be of some help?

Amarok is available as part of the KDE-on-Windows project. Haven't used it a lot, but it worked the few times I tried it.

Clementine on Windows would be awesome. It's pretty much the perfect audio player for people who just listen to music. ;) I can't stand "music players" that download album art, group bios, group websites, etc etc etc. I want to play my music, not read about my music. ;)

Hot diggity, it's now available for Windows: http://code.google.com/p/clementine-player/downloads/detail?name=Cl...

No idea how well it works.
