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 
library support.

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.
