Filed under

This is the fourth in a series of articles comparing different kind of applications. This one be about music managers, or “Itunes clones” if you will.

Consider the plethora of applications available to you when you look at GTK applications. If you’re not satisfied with the default Rhythmbox (and I am), there’s Banshee, Exaile, Listen, Quod Libet, gmusicbrowser, and even new projects like Guayedeque look very interesting.
