They’ve gone quite a long way: Songbird, the open-source cross platform music player based upon the technical foundation of Mozilla, finally has seen its 1.0.0 release, available for download for Windows, Linux and MacOS, along with a set of contributed builds both for other platforms and packaged for specific GNU/Linux distributions. Like any other Mozilla based applications, Songbird also allows for wide extensibility using addons ready and waiting to be installed, and quite a lot of other features. Though, using Xubuntu 8.10 so far, there’s quite a bunch of well-working native music players, the idea of having such an application available as a cross-platform tool surely is tempting, given I need music around most of the time. Time to get the Songbird to a flight… :>
