"Rhythmbox is, as you all know, the default gnome music
player and default music player for Ubuntu as well. Canonical
integrated Ubuntu One Music Store with Rhythmbox through a plugin
with the release of Ubuntu 10.04 "Lucid Lynx" and the
implementation works pretty good. The store has a discreet
selection of music if you live in UK or USA, for everyone else it's
a very small selection of music, but that's another story.
"Why Rhythmbox? In the past years I switched through so many
music players like Audacious, Exaile, Amarok, Banshee, Listen,
Songbird etc. and finally ended up using the default player,
Rhythmbox. Why? I'll briefly explain.
* Audacious: winamp-esque interface and music management, it
just screams 1999.
* Exaile: weird disposition of the music as a side column,
doesn't update the music library very well.
* Amarok: huge load time because of its huge kde dependencies,
