ABOUT

Exaile is a media player aiming to be similar to KDE's AmaroK, but for GTK+. It incorporates many of the cool things from AmaroK (and other media players) like automatic fetching of album art, handling of large libraries, lyrics fetching, artist/album information via the wikipedia, last.fm support, optional iPod support (assuming you have python-gpod installed).

In addition, Exaile also includes a built in shoutcast directory browser, tabbed playlists (so you can have more than one playlist open at a time), blacklisting of tracks (so they don't get scanned into your library), downloading of guitar tablature from fretplay.com, and submitting played tracks on your iPod to last.fm

I love my amarok, and think that gnome and gtk users should be able to share the same love with this app :).

Before I started to use KDE, I used Gnome, but I used Amarok, even in Gnome :)

I have tried exaile, listen and others, but I think Amarok looks the most modern.
GTK applications have some sort of classic look, can't explain why, it doesn't look polished (my opinion, but I think all things in gnome looks classic, from the icons to the panels etc).

given how KDE-centric Sabayon is, why would they provide this when Amarok is a native KDE app that does the same thing?

Because, it's about choice.

This is why we provide lots of apps, and let the user choose.

Because what one person likes, another may not.
