Alternatives to Amarok?

Hiya Norman,

I found this article to cover most players around relatively well if not a little out of date.

Personally I prefer Rhythmbox for performance and being a gnome user
it fits in well which may not be the case for you if your using KDE.
Banshee is also one of my favorites even though it does still have
some issues.

Domo may be an option to look into, I know it uses MySQL, though I'm
pretty sure development has all but stopped on it for the time being.
A mate of mine uses it and seems happy but I've not tried it out

Hope this helps you find an ample substitute.
