10 Music Players for Linux

Digital music (mp3) is around us since the final of the 90′ . We needed music players since MP3 existed. That’s why we have music players in early versions of Linux: it was developed mostly in the digital music era. Using a music player is a very personal issue, every music player has its fans. I’m creating a catalog of the music players and their features.

Be free to suggest your favorite music player if it’s not included in the list.
