OK, sir, STOP....BREATHE....count to ten. The world isn't imploding.
Perhaps you should seek a refund on you *free* software, since it's SO incredibly bad?
And are (un)Creative X-FI cards even supported yet on mainline ALSA? I mean, I know the source code was released a while ago, but does it actually work yet?

Tried Audacious? Not perfect, but the most sensible thing since xmms, IMO.
Sorry guys I was frustrated late at night yesterday .
@Ant P., I'm actually giving back something to open source, but not much ATM, seems like I'm bashing more.
@pmorph, Audacious uses to much memory and feels quite laggy, it's a bad port of xmms.
@Darkfire Fox, Yes all X-Fi based (EMU20K1 ~ EMU20K2) cards are supported out of the box since 2.6.31-rc1 or rc2, I poked around the mlists and they patched git alsa for me.

Alsaplayer is good, but it has one grave weakness: playlist handling. And the most grave problem there is the lack of "find/search" function!?!
