Amarok 2, the end of freedom. The end of a spirit.
Amarok 2 GUI... my God!
And it seems to be designed for the wide screens, as its three major vertical areas are favoring wide screens indeed. And sad It seems as it push us into the commercial. (Magnatude, CoolStreams...)
Taken from the web because the guy speaks better than I
the freedom seeker might ask whether the "binding" to Magnatune is still freedom â€” or rather favoritism.
As for the Ruby script for CoolStreams... I don't know why is CoolStreams considered to be "something good" (such an horrendous web site makes me sick), but I know that anything that redirects me to Live365.com is pure stuff! And most of the contents is for paid membership only.
Oh, and having Ruby as an addition to the bloat... oh my. The younger princess (Ruby) is more attractive than the old gals (Python, Perl), eh?
Now I know why I am not using Amarok: not only because I don't need "ultrasmart collection organizers", or because Kaffeine suits almost all my needs (the same does Gxine): it's because I hate being pushed into the commercial."
Me too, even in my KDE distro in dual boot with Mint I don't use Amarok, I use Juk for music.
