juk should be a lightweigth music player, while amarok should be an
all-featured media player. I say should because juk is in a stage
where it's not lightweigth, for the code there needs much love. that
said, juk is part of KDE software, while Amarok does not follow the
KDE rules to be part of the official package. ( same release dates for
instance )
