 Free Software's new audio heir apparent

"Rhythmbox is comparable to Apple's iTunes in that it concentrates on organizing your music collection and making it easier to navigate through it. It is not intended to be an eye-candy skinnable player that goes hand in hand with dark rooms, black lights, and glow sticks. The program has advanced playlist functionality which reads the identification tags of MP3, OGG, and other formats playable by the up-and-coming GStreamer -- a powerful open source multimedia framework multimedia framework. Rhythmbox uses these tags in order to sort your music by title, genre, artist, or album. Further, You can select songs by running a simple yet powerful search filter on your collection, rate songs, and create multiple playlists. The program's clean and intuitive interface combined with its power and performance make Rhythmbox a pleasure to use."
