I am talking about software here, not iPods. What do you guys use for listening to music on your machine? I hate xmms and I am looking for something with more features so lets here it. I want something that works more like iTunes than winamp. I need something that will manage my rather large library well and allow me to hone in on specific albums or artist better. So if you guys don't have a suggestion for me, I expect somebody to write me one quick.

amaroK (http://amarok.kde.org) is the BEST audio player for Linux. It is still a fairly new project but has already taken the audio scene by storm. Check it out, you will not be disappointed.

Yep - Amarok is great. It indexes everything nicely and also integrates with services like Musicbrainz and amazon to suggest other artists/songs and download album covers.

ok, Amarak seems to have everything was looking for that xmms didn't have. Except there is one huge problem. I don't see any way in Amarak to just shuffle my whole library, and wile I want the functionality to do play list ansd such, I don't want to always have to create a play list when I want to listen to music. Or am I just missing how do to that?

"Playlist -> Shuffle" shuffles the playlist, or "Settings -> Random mode" gets it to pick a random song each time

No that wasn't the problem, I just could figure out how to make it go through my whole library, but I found that now, so I think AmaroK is a pretty pimp music player. Its for sure my favorite so far, and I woudl recomend it to friends.
