Actually, let's see if people like it.

Populism research. Does the world like you?

Goobox: ~20,000 pages. S-J: ~161,000 pages.
Wikipedia: has a S-J page, Goobox does not.
Distributions: all that I know include S-J by default (Fedora, Ubuntu,
Novell even advertizes it on their website).

Clear victory for S-J on all of them. I'd say S-J really *is* popular,
so yes, the choice of using S-J as CD player is more than justified.
Again, if you don't like it, then you don't have to use it. But for most
people, this will do.

Now let the topic rest. I don't like those goobo vs. sound-juicer
flames, this is worse than KDE vs. GNOME. If there's particular areas
where you'd like S-J to be improved, go for it, submit a feature
enhancement request in bugzilla, but don't just flame for the heck of
