Well CCRDude, the issue is that with a large library ratings become more and more useful.
And ratings aren’t really a static thing. If there would be a nice program that I can use to listen to my music and also rate it, I’m happy. (Many tools do this)
But I haven’t found a single one that also stores the ratings in the track’s metadata yet.
Banshee 1.6 is said to have this feature. A previous patch sadly doesn’t work anymore.
