Clementine Revives Classic Amarok

Article from Issue 120/2010

Zonker takes a look at Clementine, a full-featured media player for Linux that can manage your collection as well as play your tunes.

Case in point: The Amarok developers worked long and hard to update and modernize the user interface of Amarok, only to find many users preferred the old school media player. The result? Clementine, a player “inspired by” Amarok 1.4 but updated to take advantage of the Qt4 toolkit.
