Heh, a factor of ten, but I’m happy with both.
Trillian manages Instant Messaging [IM] accounts from all four major players: AIM, ICQ, MSN, and Y!M. It does it all through an … interesting interface. There is a learning curve, but I’m very happy with the software, and the upgrade from v0.635 to 0.70 has made me very happy. 🙂
MusicMatch JukeBox has been a program I’ve long used for ripping, managing, and playing MP3’s. The thing I like best about it is that you do it all with one program. The best part of the newest version? Volume leveling on already-ripped MP3’s. No more pulling the player up to the front to just change the sound levels because the track switched. If it would output my playlist to a .txt or .xml file that I could up to IJSM, now that would be really cool. But I’ve made the request.
Just thought I’d pass some good software choices out there for you.
