I dumped amarok last year for exaile and clementine, the latter based on amarok 1.0. The Mandriva distribution did the same with the 2011 release, even though it's a KDE-centric distro and amarok is the KDE integrated player.
Half the time I couldn't get amarok's features to even work, like indexing a samba share. Clementine isn't network aware, but it's worth the compromise, I can actually listen to things with it...
