Somehow i have missed that and didn't see it. As i told before, i'm still
trying to figure gmusicbrowser out because it's a new one for me. Thanks for
pointing me in the right direction.
Looking into that showed me there were also three other options: custom,
Grip and Xcfa. Never tried Grip or Xcfa before but trying out stuff is
always fun.

I'm thinking and looking forward to see it "working" OOTB in Oneiric and the
future releases of Xubuntu, especially in the next upcomming LTS release.
Users should be able to import their cd's right away after the install
without any hassle.

On my own experience sound-juicer can't, for some reason, recognize most of

I tried Asunder for the first time and used it the last couple of days and
for my experience it worked great and got me every album info of 43 cd's i
imported/ripped. In Banshee and Rhythmbox i had a harder time with many CD's
because they where not in the CDdatabase server.
There are more apps to try and see which one is the best and fits the needs.

I also read in the other mails that there might be some changes/improvements
to come to the gmusicbrowser. That's great and i'm looking forward to it. :)
