True. There's a few senses of "removal" - removal from the package set

from the default menu. I'm really only talking about the latter.
I use XMMS.
It just feels right to me. I've tried alot of others, and I make sure that I
try them for at least a week. But in the end, I have always ended up with
XMMS. Either for the feel, for the plugin's etc.
Would I be upset if it was taken from the distro?

being installed by default if that is needed. Just don't take it from the
