Yet another dull Saturday at work. If only the firewall here would allow for IRC then waiting for file copying etc. wouldn’t be so tiresome.

Got Rhythmbox running again last night. jorn has put back the GStreamer backend and everything works like a charm for me on new Phoebe.

MAS was released a couple of days ago and we have already had a long debate on the gnome-multimedia mailing-list about MAS that is really not about MAS :).

The question debated is wether GNOME 2.4 should ship with a default sound server or not or if the abstraction GStreamer provides makes it something we should leave to the distros and users to decide. Personally I do not use a sound server, but I guess I do see the point of having a default sound backend that behaves the same way X does in regards to remote terminals etc.
