You’re right. We’ve fixed the erroneous text, added links to some reviews we’ve written about MPD clients.

The question probably refers to “The screenshot above shows GMPC in action.”, GMPC being one of the clients.

Stop using Debian.

TextRoom is great software, don’t delete it from the recommendations.

We haven’t tried TextRoom on Debian recently, but the software currently compiles flawlessly on many distros including Arch-based distros. Given that they are bleeding edge distros and Debian isn’t, it’s likely that your system is broken in some way.

Just because a program hasn’t seen any development for years doesn’t itself warrant removal.

And it does not install on recent Debian-based systems because the dependencies are no longer available. Consider deleting it from this list.

It’s easy to use, and it saves a great deal of labor. The application worked well from the Mint repository. The downside? You may have to buy more ink for the printer.

Wow. Genius. Whenever I see the “go fix it yourself” crowd surrounding an open-source project, I know to not use that b/c I can expect to implement every other standard missing feature & I might as well be maintaining my own software at that point.

Nope, not really… all the systemd distros I’ve tried have far less issues than the non-systemd distros. I’ve been using Linux Mint/Cinnamon for four years, now, without the slightest glitch. To me, experience speaks the loudest so from my experience, I’ll stick with systemd.

In Kubuntu’s case, we actually installed Ubuntu and then added kubuntu-desktop. CentOS is probably more popular in the server space than on the desktop. I typically mix between Debian and CentOS on our servers. OpenBSD makes a very good basis for firewalls.

Glad to have this diversity of options in the Free Software world.
