    Probably being lazy.
    I appologize if I'm not including Windows or OSX users with this, or their specific Music Playing applications, but I specifically wanted this poll to be geared towards Linux users. I don't mind if you run something using Wine, but please post what it is, and don't vote if it's iTunes or WMP, neiter one have worked for many versions now, and I see no point in including them.


    Anyway, onto the main topic.

    I myself happen to use Rhythmbox, I have always loved it since I tried it out back when I switched over to using Ubuntu 9.04 from Windows 3 or 4 years ago. I hated Banshee when I tried it out, and hate it even more now knowing it depends heavily on Mono, I hate Amarok as it seems to be too confusing for me. Exile didn't really have what I needed, MPD+Whatever was too fugly, so I kept with Rhythmbox, and have all the time through my distro-hopping days, even after I settled with Arch Linux.

    I don't at all mind DeadBeef either, it's pretty damn light weight if I do say so myself, but I really prefer having Rhythmbox. It's got alot of features that I probably could not work without. No Mono dependancies (**** Mono. That is all). Pity the replaygain plugin segfaults old R'Box, not that I used it that often to begin with.

    So Linux users of the Temp, what do you use?

    I tried using Amarok and it was pretty confusing I actually haven't tried any others out.

    Amarok took me awhile to get used to, and I'm not sure I would've ever switched had I stayed in a Gnome environment. I don't particularly like banshee. I'll admit it's got some nice features, but it goes out of it's way to look like iTunes, which I don't much care for.

    I never really used media players like those much in windows. Winamp pretty much did what I wanted and stayed out of my way. In Linux, they seem like more of a necessity. But that's me...

    i tried amarok but i guess i just couldnt get used to it. but there do seem to be shitloads of plugins for it and lots of users.

    after that, i tried exaile. and ive been using it for a couple years now. the only thing i can find about it to complain about is the lyrics plugins. neither of them seem to work too well. its definitely not a deal-breaker.

    I've recently started using mpd with Sonata on my laptops and GMPC on my desktop. It's quite nice, especially since I can stream to my phone anywhere with 3G service. If I only want to listen to one song I just use mplayer from a terminal.

    I've used other players in the past as well, Amarok, Audacious, and Exaile most notably, but that was quite awhile ago now, so I can't say how newer versions hold up.
