Best way to handle big music collection?

view story

http://ubuntu.5.x6.nabble.com – HiI'm a long time Linux user myself (Debian mostly), and trying to help a singer and previous Windows user to use Ubuntu. He's happy with Ubuntu so far but handling his rather big music collection is really an important part of his computer usage, and I'm clearly at a loss on how to best deal with it. I personally like to use the bare filesystem and simple tools as much as possible, at least as opposed to programs that tie you in or are buggy. But, at his scale and considering the issues I'm clearly not convinced anymore that this is a good approach. 1. he's not an advanc (HowTos)
