probably a question of what one got used to. those who used amarok 1.4

much, have less trouble. if that's true, having amarok as default and
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.

The Amarok UI is just something to which I rapidly adapted. My bone to pick
with the "new and improved" Amarok is every few updates, or so, it breaks.
For version whores like me we will go along just fine for a while, but
eventually (and fairly regularly I might add) some update installs a version
which missed the QA cycle and has something wrong with it.

I used to just use Clementine temporarily and return to Amarok when some
subsequent update had it working properly once again. As time went by and I
experienced this cycle more and more I just stayed with Clementine. It
doesn't seem to have this 'every few updates has a broken one...', at least
have not seen it do this yet.

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

That's kind of how I feel too. As long as I can switch my system to whatever
I choose I'm happy.
