Pretty self-explanatory...

I also use sox's play, along with the mpc client for mpd. smile.gif

Let me be clear.. I don't have a problem with the underlying OS, after all it's BSD.. I have a problem with the active pursuit of control and lock-in by Apple. I value my freedom and I have no doubt that in a computer driven world that freedom is jeopardized just as much by a controlling corporate interest as it is a governmental one. In the 90's and early 2000's that threat was Microsoft, but the lock-in and control that Apple wields, and which their users blindly accept, is stuff that Gates and Ballmer could only dream of. Apple has almost always been this way, but before the Ipod they were small enough to safely ignore.

We're now WAY off topic.


I'm going to take a closer look at cmus. What backend does it use? Does it handle gapless on FLAC and Vorbis?

Actually, they weren't always this way. It is getting steadily worse. Darwin (the derivative of freeBSD) was for awhile a RMS-approved free software initiative. It was only the GUI iCandy that was proprietary. They have backed off on that. With 10.8, the default setting prevents you from installing third-party apps that aren't distributed via the "App Store." You can turn it off, but the naive user turns around and blames those of us who deploy free software but refuse to pay their ransom.

That, to me, is much more of a problem than their musical walled garden.
