 GNU/Linux Media Player Round-up

Linux Orbit takes a look at media players available for GNU/Linux users: " As GNU/Linux distributions continue to mature, you read more and more articles in the popular media comparing Linux and Microsoft Windows (98, ME, XP, 2000, ad nauseum) on the desktop. I decided to write this round-up after having just finished reading yet another Linux vs. Windows article. One of the common themes these kind of reviews seem to discuss is the lack of decent Windows Media Player replacements available on Linux. This is a common misconception that I feel is brought about by a few of the more mainstream Linux distributions not supplying decent media player packages with their CD distributions. (Are you listening Redhat and Mandrake?)."
