Agreed. Even more disappointing is that they haven't done much to
improve the program in so many years. To name a few, I think it lacks
in the GUI/Skin, Gnome and X window functionality/integration, and media
I've started to use zinf, but have experience another set of problems
with it. While I like having media library functionality and a more
intuitive GUI, support and documentation of isn't great, alsa and mixing
other audio streams seems buggy, and the program itself will crash
Also, I guess my requirements are slightly different than most, because
I use ogg encoding for digital copies of my stuff.
