Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"When it comes to music players, Linux evolved heavily
during the last three or four years, and new players are announced
on a regular basis. I remember that in 2006, when I was starting up
with Linux, there were only a few applications to choose from, like
Amarok, Rhythmbox, Listen or XMMS, and a few more less popular and
not so full-featured. But times have changed and now the Linux
platform benefits from players of all kinds: there are replacements
for XMMS for both GNOME and KDE (Audacious and Qmmp),
collection-oriented players like Amarok, Banshee, Exaile or
Rhythmbox. There are less-known players like Quod Libet, Guayadeque
or Jajuk, or the client-server oriented ones like MPD.
"And the ones I just listed are only the ones which came to my
mind at the moment. Some would say having so many players for a
single task is a bad thing, but I say it's not. Having enough
options to choose from is a great advantage. If you don't like one
style, try the next player, if you don't like its approach either,
try the next one, and so on."
