    Finally a music manager that doesn’t totally suck. I wish aTunes would use the system’s skin and not their own.

    aTunes is a really great audio player equal to or better than most other Linux audio players when it comes to features, however, it does seem a bit heavy on memory, I seriously would not not recommend it for anyone with 1GB RAM or less.
