It is my favourite KDE application at the moment. I love so many of its
album management features, but I just wish it was slightly more stable. I
still use XMMS at work, but it requires quite a bit of manual handling of
playlists or occasional "Jump to track". After AmaroK, XMMS just seems
like a waste of time and a significant step back. I raised that as an is-
sue in the XMMS users mailing list recently and it is still unknown when
XMMS 2 will come out. With Amarok, it sometimes feels like XMMS betrayal.
