Parent article: Amarok 2.5 released
Previous versions were so big, slow, bloated and awkward to use that I am not even going to bother trying this one. Sorry, but Amarok lost all its magic with the new 4.0 redesign. I am not the target audience anymore anyways, I must want to have a fast and simple interface to listen to my music.
But the great thing about FOSS is that others can take you work and do something else with it. So we have Clementine, which I also don't use ;-)
When I made the decision to only have my own favourite music on my computer my music life became a lot simpler. Instead of 190GBs (all deleted) of music I only have six, which I recently uploaded to a big new cloud hosting platform and it gives my access to all my music on all my devices free of charge. I couldn't be happier. One application less to worry about (and update and maintain and backup and hope the devs don't go wander off to totally different UI etc.)
