xmms is obsolete and nobody should use it.

I like xmms. I have, in addition to the main window, windows for
playlist, equalizer and 'blur scope'. What would you suggest

There's tons of decent players, take a look at banshee, rhythmbox,
muine, exaile, listen or if you like xmms interface look at audacious.


I got an even better suggestion stop trying to dis XMMS it is the king of
the heap as far as players go .

But it is not maintained (bugs, even security bugs, are not being fixed)
and depends on obsolete libraries that are also not maintained, thus
incurring a raising maintenance load.

But there is nothing to replace it , This security thing is becoming a bit of
a nonsense lets face it we are talking about Home systems not top security
commercial or government systems here they got SLED and SLES if they are
running 11.2 distro then thats their problem .

When there is a decent working replacement for XMMS then all well and good but
so far the choices just suck .
