Agree. It also depends on the situation. Personally, I like Dragon 
Player the way it is for when I want to quick view media files. When I 
click an audio file, for example, I like it better if Dragon Player 
opens and quickly starts playing the file with its simple interface. 
Amarok is too heavy for just playing a single file and it is slow to 
start. However, if I want to browse/listen to my music collection, then 
of course I will run Amarok and not Dragon Player.
