Software

I was always of the impression that the function of a music player was little more than playing music. That impression took a beating when I tried a versatile music player called AmaroK. This music player is developed specifically for the KDE environment but can also be used in other window managers.

When ever I come across songs that I truly like, I usually rip them from my audio CD and save them on my computer so that I do not have to pop in the CD each and every time I want to listen to the music.
