That is unfortunate. I don't actually believe in Tomahawk, the problem
is that it's trying to do too much. I want something headless (i.e.
fully functional without a GUI) and lightweight like Playdar that I
could easily run on several machines. That would allow to maintain good
modularity and build amazing players on top of that kind of an
infrastructure. I am thinking of something like mpd, but distributed.
Tomahawk's slogan is "the social media player". I don't care about
social-ness. That can be built on top of a good infrastructure too. I
care about ease of setup and access. Therefore I think Playdar is
different and is based on a better, more fundamental idea.
Anyway, that's just my opinion. Thanks for the reply :-)
