It’s not that Ubuntu’s default Rhythmbox is less powerful or lags in performance, it’s just that I do not like its looks. To me it looks exactly the same as it looked 5 years back while the desktop Linux world has changed drastically, at least in looks. This is the reason why I prefer to install Tomahawk in Ubuntu for local music and Spotify for streaming music.

So, how do you find Deepin music player? Does it give you enough reasons to make it your default music player? Do share your views.
