Jason Warner, Ubuntu Desktop Manager at Canonical, decided to make Rhythmbox the default music player in the upcoming Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) operating system.
Yes! Rhythmbox will be (once again) the default audio/music playback and organizer app for the Ubuntu operating system, replacing the unstable Banshee.
"Thank you all for sending feedback on the default music player for 12.04. It is clear the right decision for 12.04 is to make Rhythmbox the default music player. Thank you, above all else, for keeping the conversation cordial and making the decision about what is best for Ubuntu." - said Jason Warner.
The decision was taken based on the feedback received from users who posted on the Ubuntu mailing list and our "Do You Want Rhythmbox or Banshee in Ubuntu 12.04?" article.
Thank you all for making the right decision by choosing Rhythmbox for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin).
Enjoy Ubuntu forever..
Rhythmbox Is the Default Player for Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin)
