I beg to differ. I think this is a rather technical argument with
zero user benefit.
The non-latin support of gtk2 (vs gtk1) alone is a clear user benefit.
So this is *very* far from an abstract argument with no tangible end-
And I could easily write a page about gtk1 shortcomings from an end-user
POW without even getting into specific xmms problems (that deserve at
least a page themselves). I appreciate some people are used to xmms and
resigned themselves to its behaviour long ago. That doesn't make it a
good app, nor does it mean that someone not exposed to another media
player before would chose xmms over rythmbox (which has its own
problems, but it's doubtful they are much worse than the problems of
xmms and at least rythmbox is still in heavy development and not
stagnating like xmms)
