I hate to beat a dead horse here, but wrong, wrong, _wrong_ thinking. My
mother has no clue what RB is. My brother (who is fairly computer
skilled, but not with Linux) has no idea what rhythmbox is. Why should
they need to learn/know what rhythmbox is just to add something to it?
The real kicker is that they both use iTunes all the time- so they would
definitely want rhythmbox on linux, even if they didn't know what it
was. Why should they need to learn a fancy brand name to play their

Anyway, I hate to get snappy about this, but... we've got a /huge/
advantage over the proprietary OSes because we don't have to name things
