Amarok coming to Windows

amarok-logo-blog2.pngAmarok, the awesome music player, only available on Linux and Unix until now is finally coming to Windows. A post on the Amarok development team’s blog, reveals that they have managed to compile the Windows version of Amarok2. We couldn’t find any information on whether that meant a Mac version will also be delivered, but still found the time to unearth a good guide to play Amarok on your Mac.

A favourite of Linux users, Amarok is often considered superior to other players like iTunes or Winamp thanks to features like integrated Wikipedia lookup, lyrics downloading and advanced track organisation. It also integrates well with and plays the whole collection of Magnatune songs. In all, it’s an exciting new program coming to Windows and together with Songbird, could represent the future of music players.
