Canonical’s Jason Warner asked the Ubuntu community on the Ubuntu mailing list whether Rhythmbox should replace Banshee as the default music player for Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin. After considering all the responces received, it was decided that yes in fact, Rhythmbox will be replacing Banshee.
“Thank you all for sending feedback on the default music player for 12.04. It is clear the right decision for 12.04 is to make Rhythmbox the default music player. Thank you, above all else, for keeping the conversation cordial and making the decision about what is best for Ubuntu.” – said Jason Warner.
