Yes, and No.

You are missing the fact that it can read many more formats
than can Kaffeine, and it has the ability to play encrypted
DVDs which Kaffeine does not (unless you search out the
packages that allow this from Packman).

Also you miss the fact that it can stream video to other
machines over your net.

OTHO, if you never do any of that and don't want to, you
are probably not missing anything at all. ;-)
