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.
