That'd be the first I've heard of it - rhythmbox is still a fairly
decent audio app (even if the album cover plugin has some odd results -
it brought up an Elmo cover for The Clash's "London Calling" here,
which had me in stitches) and as far as I'm aware still maintained.

Amarok is a KDE app last I checked so it shouldn't affect GNOME at
all :-)

I have noted in the recent past some effort to bring in Banshee as a
default media player - I'm not 100% sure this is wise as while it's
very good - I use it day to day - it's not quite as solid as Rhythmbox
IMHO and being Mono may not be to everyone's tastes.
