i've just read
he got a pretty good idea, see the 2nd last paragraph:
I may know that Amarok <http://amarok.kde.org/>,
Rhythmbox <http://projects.gnome.org/rhythmbox>, and
Songbird<http://getsongbird.com/>are all noteworthy Linux music
players, but come on! Does anyone beside
another Linux expert know that? Letting users choose a program by say
clicking on "music player" and then picking one makes all the sense in the
The idea is that newbies are likely have no idea what amarok,rhythmbox are,
so does other applications Totem, abiword, Brasero..etc. what they know
are the general type of the software --- Music player, movie player, office
suite, CD/DVD burner...
Also i tried to search for "music player" in Add/Remove Software,
interestingly, it gives extremely odd and pointless result..(try that
So i can see why newbies are pull their hair off and *CAN"T GET THINGS
DONE*, and claim *fedora sucks*
See this fact, i think that we should classify some applications under their
For instance, have Rhythmbox, amarok ..etc under "Music Player"
The above is just a suggestion, hoping to help brain storming more better

get comfort with Linux/fedora.
