XMMS2

Thank you so much for the release of XMMS2 which,
"is a redesign of the XMMS music player. It features a client-server model, allowing multiple (even simultaneous!) user interfaces, both textual and graphical." --Synaptic
XMMS1 was uber lame. I got an icon which loaded a wonderful graphical interface. It was easy to use and "just worked". This was far too simple and straight forward. I'm very pleased with your recent work. Previously XMMS was one of the few applications that I liked on Linux that "just worked". I'm very happy to report it no longer resides on that list.

Thus far I've installed over 15 packages related to XMMS2 yet I am not able to load any sort of graphical interface - this is perfect. This new system which includes no menu listing/icon, no graphical interface, no simple instructions, and requires MORE packages surely marks some sort of apex for the XMMS team.

I wait with baited breath for the next release of XMMS.
