MP3 players for Linux

GDAM ( is an MP3 player that can also be used for mixing music. Any number of MP3 files can be mixed in a turntable-style interface. GDAM is not supported by as many platforms, but is known to work on Debian, RedHat and FreeBSD.

TK3play ( is another player for Linux that is worth a look. It is still in development, though, the latest release being dated June 1998. The program has a Tk graphical interface and requires TclX 8.0 or 7.6 to run. Although it does not have many of the options of the other players, the graphical layout is clear and easy to use.

JukeBox ( is a different type of MP3 player and is based on mySQL, Apache and Perl. It plays files stored on a computer's hard disk through a Web interface which can also handle file uploading. The programmer claims that it was developed for an Internet cafe to let the customers choose their own music. Streaming is possible with Jukebox.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
