Banshee 1.4.1 Review

Reviews

Banshee has had a lot of crappy reviews in the past. This one is not a crappy review in the sense that it is bad. No this project has come a long way since I last tried it. The Banshee project should be very happy with their success as I have tried a great many Music and Video Player Programs but most are not as close to as good to this one.

Banshee has a great GUI (Graphical User Interface for those of you new to computers.) The interface is a very nice touch to the new Ubuntu interface where I am trying this out. Everything just, as it seems to me, to be in the right place. I would say this is the best music player other then VLC Media Player.

But, for those that are still unsure of some of the contemporary offerings, we’ll be going through them today. Read more
