One thing I really loved about linux was using the Amarok audio player. I and I am sure many other people have wished that there would be a Windows port. Well by the time version 2.0 of Amarok comes out there will be a Windows port. For me this is such a great thing.

hopefully it will be as stable as it is on linux.

Do you think this is a good thing?

I don't think that's a good thing, now Amarok is not a good reason to switch to Linux anymore :chriso:

The good thing about it e.g. is it's power. You have a collection, which it can download album covers and the playlist has the ultimate search function, which works the same as google search.

Sweet, I don't remember that coming with my Fedora Core 5. Which versions does it come with, and do you have a link for downloading?

it's available from amarok.kde.org

but I think it should be included somewhere in the package list of Fedora... try searching for it :talker:
