I do not want to sound rude, but MediaMonkey might be not as popular as you think. If you go to a place like CNet, you have this ranking on total number of downloads (as of today):
- JetAudio (default manager for Cowon DAPs)
At the moment, I will assume that there are only a bunch (100k) Ubuntu users that might pay for a non-free management software, as there are many options there (although I do not like them). As far as the unhappy MacOs iTunes users (there isn't much of an option there), people might consider paying for an alternative - they are used to pay for software.
It would be interesting to check how many of MediaMonkey users are actually paying customers. I know I am.
So you're saying it one of the top 4 and is right up there with iTunes and winamp.
"only a bunch (100k)" so 100,000 x USD 39.95 = USD 3,995,000.00
You're right it's not enough to even bother with.
What was I thinking.
Well fine then 100,000 people then that are ubuntu users. It doesn't matter what number I use someone will still say it's wrong so the next one will say 10,000 and the next 1,000.... As long as it doesn't work, or doesn't work right on linux we'll never know so that's a mute point. People are always asking what the best music app. is and as long as MM doesn't work it wont be an option. No I'm not going to install a VM with windows just to have MM as a media player period.
Getting it to work under WINE DIDN'T WORK.
That's right go for MAC, I've never owned one and never will. I don't know anyone that owns one either.
I paid for a gold license as well, too bad I didn't switch to linux earlier then we wouldn't even be having this discussion.
I didn't post here to get in an argument about it. I had something to say as a paying customer and I said it.
As for having windows running for years without any viruses for years so what. I used win for over 20 years and I couldn't care less.
While some linux users wont pay for for a closed source application like MediaMonkey. Others would and do.
If they port it to linux then I'll start recommending it again, but not until then.
Have a nice day and you can continue bickering amongst yourselves.
I'm out of here.
