It's full of bells and whistles that I don't use and don't want, so
yes, just a player is what I want.  I stopped using Amarok because it
was so often broken.  If that period has passed, the users will be
thankful.  When I started using Clementine I realised just how far
Amarok had moved from my particular wants and needs.  I have no
problem with the fact that so many people love it - it's just not for me.
