Exaile Makes Playing Music Simple and Stress-Free

Filed under
Software

The Exaile music player hits a high note as a solid performer with trimmed-down features that make it elegant yet easy to use.

The Linux desktop has an impressive list of good music playing apps, so choosing a favorite title is a difficult task. The decision almost always comes down to personal taste rather than feature sets or GUI.

Exaile ranks high on my player list for what it does not have. It spares me having to traipse through a bigger-than-needed set of features. Not being an audiophile, I find I'm intimidated by the tweaking options other music players constantly display, even though I rarely have occasion to use them.

That doesn't mean Exaile is a lightweight music app.

On the contrary.
