I use it a lot, but I don't love it.  It's not as dependable as XMMS.  A 
problem I have is that as apt upgrades packages it seems to upgrade some of 
the packages Amarok needs (for mp3's or radio streams), but not others.  So 
the dependencies get out of whack.  Amarok seems very finicky to me.  In the 
old days it crashed a lot, but it is stable now.

And while we're on my favorite topic; KDE 4.x, I can't resist this.  Here's 
another problem in 4.1.  Unlike Windows, Gnome, and KDE 3.5; in KDE 4.1 I 
cannot bring up a web page in Firefox, click on File->Save Page As->Desktop, 
and have an icon on the desktop that will bring up that particular web page.

To me, KDE 4.x values eye candy over functionality.
