Well I couldn't even get it to recognize any of my music files, much
less play them.
And I find that RhythmBox has an incredibly obtuse interface. I was
eventually able to create a Playlist consisting of only one album after
realizing that the damn thing wants to dump all my music into one list.
And I still have no idea which magic series of clicks and keypresses got
it to actually play the music.
I am NOT impressed at the opacity of the interface. Nor am I impressed
with the requirements of importing and creating a playlist for each
album. Tedious boring work which computers never get tired of doing..
Anyone got any better ideas for a program which will deal with a tree of
composers, with albums as leaves underneath?
Please let me know if anything I say offends you.
I may wish to offend you again in the future.
