Linux is the vast number of software applications available. All a user need do is log into the repsitory, search for the progam, click, download, and install.
Linux Mint repository the other day, I happily stumbled upon a terrific little audio player called Aqualung. It has a simple single window interface, comes with customizable skins, and plays all audio formats. (Check out all the features on their web page!)
I used Linux Mint's "Add-Remove" programs routine (which is a simpler GUI front end for the Adept repository installer) I checked the box next to the program, and then clicked the button marked "Apply Changes."
Aqualung was downloaded and installed to my system in just a couple of minutes.
I then went to my launch menu, selected the Multimedia menu, and Aqualung was listed.
I opened the program, dragged and dropped a Paul McCartney folder to the open window, clicked play, and I was listening to the former Beatle's Unplugged - The Offical Bootleg album!
And because Aqualung is a "Gapless" music player, an album like Unplugged (which is a live performance), plays one song after another without any silent spots or gaps.
Aqualung is easy to use, simple to customize and just a delight to use.
Get Linux, then get Aqualung.
