Not quite sure what to think about it...but if it'll have tight integration with such web services as Last.fm (I'm still waiting for guessing what to play next based on few songs already played BTW) and MusicBrainz, why not...

I'm very interested in the customization aspects of it.

QUOTE
Songbird's underlying programming technology is called XML User Interface Language, or XUL. Along with letting people create their own look for the software, this will allow music services or developers to write their own plug-ins, letting them add features or tap directly into their own digital-download stores.

Tho' it may be quite a while before we'll get to see if it lives up to the hype.

QUOTE
Lord cautioned that little of this has actually been built yet. The version that will be released early next year will largely be a demonstration of how a media player can be built on top of the Mozilla technology. Most of the advanced features people now expect from modern music software will be added over the course of further development, he said.

"What we've built is a user preview," Lord said. "This is meant to inspire and show the road map--and a glimpse of where we are on that road map.
