asked you to add your entire hard disk to your collection. ;-)

But you can also use Amarok without building a collection. It's just not the

This can be turned off in the preferences (a single checkbox).

This too (it's called OSD and it's also a single checkbox to untick).

The obsolete widget set which gives XMMS its outdated ugly look. :-)
