The price of freedom is responsibility, but it’s a bargain, because freedom is priceless.

Hugh Downs

If you’re like me, everything’s better with music. If a computer can’t take the place of a stereo wherever I am, then I’m just not interested. So, I can assure you that there are many ways to listen to music within Linux. Read on to find the various methods available! The only tricky bit used to be listening to MP3s, because they’re a patented format, but RealPlayer is available for Linux and has a license to play MP3s, so you’re all set. See Chapter 16 for how to install RealPlayer.

Are you an iTunes fan? If so, check out Chapter 15 for how you can install iTunes in Linux!
