I stand ready, willing, and able to alpha/beta test a Linux (or cross-platform) version of MediaMonkey. MediaMonkey is _the_ music management software. I don't like using Wine, and would prefer something native. Please contact me when you have something concrete.

Also looking forward to using MediaMonkey on linux.

On wine it has been terrible, and all other music library management software suck.

This is the only sensible thing to do.

From a business point of view the one thing worse than no linux version, would be a poorly implemented unstable Linux version.

So kick back and relax.. good things come in time.
I tend to disagree. Since my windows laptop expired itself, I have NO version of MM at all.. nil.. zilch .. nada.. finito :(
I don't intend to buy another laptop just to run MM, so now I'm forced to find something in Linux to fill the void. I don't actually use MM to play files, or even rip them, I only use it for management of my 3500 odd album collection. My main use was for tagging, embedding artwork, producing reports to store on my phone to avoid duplication when I buy CDs from garage sales, syncing and converting file types to use on other devices. The problem is, I know of no other software that can do all the things I used MM Gold for.

I am also waiting for MM on Linux. In the interim I am using gmusicbrowser with the Z_ICE_V0.2 layout.
Should you want to try it out I suggest you google "How To - GMusicBrowser and Custom Layouts" to seen Vastone's setup recommendations on the VSIDO Community.

I would also love to see MM running natively on linux.

I just gave up using Windows and moved to Debian.
MMW with wine is no real solution as it ends up in stuttering sound.
Storing music & database on a local network share and running MMW in a virtual machine works but randomly lags extremely.
I really can't wait to see MM running natively under linux, too.

I migrated to Linux long time back and settled for Clementine. The initial problem was the alsa device kept changing after reboots. This I solved by writing a small script which calls Clementine after modifying Clementine.conf with the right alsa name for my external dac. Clementine is nowhere near MM when it comes to media management. So I am eagerly waiting to replace Clementine with MM.

I have been using Linux as my primary OS for better than a decade. Just from an hour's worth of work in Media Monkey, I am ready to toss Clementine out the door.

In short, I really would like to have a port of MM for Linux (I am currently using Mint 18.3 KDE).

I am thinking about dropping the money for the Gold edition, but I boot into Windows so rarely, and when I do, it is a painful experience.

Is there already a schedule for a Linux version?

I can only agree to the previous Posts, there is nothing the comparable.
And I would not like to entrust with other Programen my collection.
