If you are an old music fan, you must be having a lot of music on tape cassettes. These tapes cassettes have not only become obsolete, they are also bulky, require more maintenance and wear with use and risk loss of music. Why not convert all your music cassettes into MP3 and save it on your hard disk or CD/DVD?
Due to licensing issues, Ubuntu does not play MP3 songs out of the box. But it can be easily configured to play MP3s and other restricted media formats with just a few clicks.
