Re: replacing XMMS

So our situation with music players is a little bad.  Right now in the

Ideally we would only have one music player.  I'm hoping to get
Rhythmbox in good enough shape for FC3 that it can replace XMMS for most
use cases.

What I'm curious of is comments by people who still use XMMS, and why. What are the most important things to you that need to be fixed in

It takes up way too much space. I tend to use xmms and noatun as they are usable while shaded. That way I can have it always on top, and on every desktop without getting in the way. Rythmbox is not only completely useless shaded, but larger. Also I don't see an easy way to increase buffering to prevent skips.

There is no such thing as obsolete hardware.
Merely hardware that other people don't want.
