If you have Ubuntu set up correctly it should be as simple as :

apt-get install xmms

as root.

I've used Debian since the Linux-2.0.x days and have always loved it, Ubuntu has been okay the few times I've used it, but I really miss the huge precompiled software library you get with Debian.

The only Linux I use at home now though is CentOS 4 em64t because at work we only use RHEL4.

IMHO All binary based distros are pretty much the same, I think I've used Linux for long enough now (since '94 or '95) that they all just seem kind of boring.

I thought the Ubuntu packages library was bigger ... if you added in all the non-free, backports, universe, etc.

But ... I like Xubuntu currently. Good cross between bloated UI (gnome) and speed (cli).

Using dapper, if that's important for people to know.

I've used Dapper and Breezy on my old non mac laptop, and I have to say that while gnome isn't all that OS X is, it isn't bad. KDE is a really great desktop environment, but I find it too hard to customize to my liking. And heaven forbid you lose your KDE prefs at some point, because you will NEVER get your KDE setup back the way you had it!

Ubuntu is a great linux distro and I'm really glad to see Shuttleworth push it as much as he has.
