Default Music Management

What do you use to manage the music on your G1? I'm patiently waiting for http://abock.org/2008/10/20/cross-platform-thoughts-through-the-lense-of-banshee/ to happen in the hopes that it can manage music on a USB Mass Storage device.

i am using amarok and it works ak. you can add the g1 as a generic device and give it the path to the mounted usb drive.

hopefully there will be a way soon to sync with amarok and submit tracks to last.fm but atleast we can organize our music directly on the device though amarok.

Just picked up some more info regarding Banshee on one of my many RSS feeds.

Well, for folks running Android on the G1, there’s a new open source music player to enjoy. It’s called Banshee, and the player makes it easy to manage and listen to your favorite tunes on your G1.
Banshee 1.4 features automatic library synchronization and can also handle device playlists. The app works with iPods, MTP players and USB storage devices… and the T-Mobile G1 right out of the box. Using Banshee, you can even import music purchased from the Amazon MP3 store.
Aaron Bockover, the lead developer on Banshee has noted that using Banshee and the G1 together provides the same kind of multimedia management experience available on the iPhone.
“Because the Android platform is open source, I was able to easily figure out optimal ways of implementing Android/G1 support…For instance, I was unsure what the maximum cover art size should be on the device, so I just read the source. It was a nice for once to not have to reverse engineer or guess!”
There isn't a windows version as of yet but reading on the banshee website then one is in the making.

A couple of links containing more info
