A while back I posted about Rhythmbox including support for Open Content services such Jamendo and Magnatune. For a while now Rhythmbox has included support for last.fm and I have used it to update my account there. Well, today I went to fire up my music in Rhythmbox, clicked the last.fm entry and started listening to my Neighbour’s music. One click and I am now listening to a stack of incredible metal, perfectly suited to my tastes.

This is great for a number of reasons:

  • For last.fm to figure out the kind of stuff I like listening to it did not resort me entering metadata. I just listen to music, and it learns about my impeccable taste in music. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • To access this Neighbour radio it is one-click-tastic. I click a button and I get some decent music.

This is exactly the kind of stuff I am talking about. Rhythmbox has made it easy for last.fm to learn about what I like to listen to and as such provide me with with new content via my Neighbour’s radio, all from within the comfort of a single Rhythmbox window.

We need more stuff like this in the Open Source desktop. Yes indeed. ๐Ÿ™‚
