    I use Zune. I have it set up to stream music from my server (5079 songs indexed). It uses, at most, 7% CPU and 160 MiB and that's while playing a 320 kbps MP3 and doing its screensaver thing.

    There is absolutely nothing music related on my computer except the Zune application. It is all remote (mostly revolving around ID3Tag in every song).

    It's your subjective opinion. And by today's standards ram usage is no longer a problem.

    So your reply to his subjective opinion which was a reply to your subjective opinions is that his opinion is subjective...

    Your bird is a urinal ... or how they say that ... no matter. And no my opinion wasn't subjective, just a fact. Linux audio players are great. I bet everyone knows that.

    :confused: Who are you anyway? A lawyer? It wasn't my opinion, it wasn't subjective and it was a fact. Linux has a lot of great audio applications just as macs have awesome graphic tools. What's the point of your comments and nitpicking anyway? Or maybe you're a hyper audio expert or maybe just his lover who knows. *shrugs* Ain't gonna waste my time on this.

    Yes, it was your opinion, you said it yourself, and no it is not fact.

    To say something is the best it has to fit the situation at hand. Everyone's situation is different. That is why when you ask what is the best xyz program, you generally get 10 different people with 10 different answers.

    Just using the Linux music program as an example, they aren't the best if the person isn't currently using linux, or isn't willing to switch to linux. They also aren't really that much better than some offerings available on Windows, so the switch to Linux just to use them isn't warranted in most cases.

    Everyone things their opinions are correct, that doesn't make them a fact. Facts are true no matter what situation, since everyones needs are different for audio programs, his opinions can't be fact here.

    This. Low mem footprint (using 30,000 K for me), customizable, like the interface and everything else, plugins, lots of stuff.

    Foobar is awesome. Get milkdrop the best Music Visualizer out there hands down.

    MJ's usage is usually lower then that however, I typically load playlists that have over 2000 songs in them like the complete Future Trance and Dream Dance series in playlists of thier own and FT has 60 vol. and DD has 63 vol.

    what pissed you off????

    now, coming from a simple media player like zune there is a learning curve to media jukebox..... is that it? i figured it out right away....

    and you develop software so you should have figured it out right away with no problems....

    I think mostly the ads and the inability to change startup away from the ad pages. I ended up firewalling the program.

    Then later, I got tired of having to search for stuff. It's intended to work with playlists and I don't like using playlists. I usually listen to an album, genre, or an artist. Zune did that in a few clicks, not to mention, automatically adding/removing songs as they are added/removed from the music directory(s).
