I’ve been impressed by iTunes‘ usability since I started using it with the Nano. It’s got a slick, functional interface. I’ve been considering making it my music librarian, but have decided not to. iTunes doesn’t natively support all the formats I use, most notably Ogg Vorbis and FLAC. I don’t think Apple will ever add support for codecs that aren’t natively supported by iPods. So it will remain a niche player for me.

I’ll continue to use Foobar2000 for the majority of my computer-based music stuff. In fact, once version 0.9 comes out, I plan on trying out plugins new to me, like the Columns UI, to increase its efficiency for me. I also want to delve into its playlist generation and scheduling capabilities, to see if I can’t move more of ICYG’s functionality into FB2K itself.
