Filed under
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. What is unique about this music player is that it supports a wide variety of features apart from playing music.

I am not a keen connoisseur of music. But I do enjoy listening to certain kinds of music. My taste in music is driven by the rhythm of the music rather than its lyrics. So even if there is no meaning to the song but is pleasing to my ears, then I tend to enjoy it more. 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. Now if you are wondering what all this have to do with AmaroK, then read on...

  • Device Tailored Compositors with Qt Wayland at CLAAS E-Systems
    Have you heard about software in cars that run on embedded devices? Do you think that creating such software might be challenging? Well, welcome to a complete new world of complexity, welcome to the world of agriculture machines! For many years, automatic steering (on fields), terminals to control the complex mechanical operations of a self-driving 16 ton combine harvester on a soft ground, and self-optimization systems to optimize any tiny bit of your harvester, are key demands from customers. I, myself, am working at CLAAS E-Systems, the electronics and software department within the CLAAS group. Our group is well known for being among the leading manufacturers for combine harvesters, tractors and forage harvesters.
