clementine as an option makes sense, since long time users are more
likely to know about the alternative and can easier implement it.

Yeah thats true, Amarok <= 1.4 was great. Really the best music player
for a long time. Then the new Amarok came out... just horrible UI. I
switched to Clementine.

I don't mind if Amarok is default, so long as I can find Clementine
easily. Currently it's in packman.

I just worry about people trying to transition from Windows. I do repairs and
such, and I offer very steep discounts in service for switching to Linux from
Windows. So even though I will show them something, the computer illiterate
will forget how to use a mouse from time to time. Amarok is not intuitive,
does not follow any usual convention in music players.
