Songbird - The finest music player ever

Filed under
Software
Moz/FF

Bombastic titles tend to draw the eye, but trust me, this is more than just a firecracker. Discovering new applications is fun - discovering great new applications is sublime. For people with old, acquired taste, finding new thrills is not easy. But every now and then, you stumble upon a remarkable piece of engineering, which simply blows you away.

Songbird is one such piece. I should not have been surprised; Mozilla people, the fathers and mothers of the famous Firefox, had a big say in its conception; and they know their business when it comes to software. But this time they really did it. The promise that Songbird is going to become the Firefox of music is not an empty one.

Songbird, a lesson in excellence

Ever wondered what it would be like to take a great browser like Firefox and turn in into a music center? Well, you get Songbird. A simple, pleasant, no-nonsense media player, with tabbed interface, auto-update, extensible with addons, beautiful, smart, and extremely well arranged, ergonomically and esthetically.

Windows 10 vs. Linux Radeon Software Performance, Including AMDGPU-PRO & RadeonSI

As alluded to earlier and on Twitter, the past few days I have been working on a fresh Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu Linux graphics/gaming performance comparison. This time it's looking at the latest Radeon performance using an R9 Fury and RX 480. Tests on Windows were obviously done with Radeon Software Crimson Edition while under Linux were the two latest AMD/RTG Linux driver options: the hybrid AMDGPU-PRO driver and the fully open-source driver via Linux 4.8 and Mesa 12.1-dev.
