Snakeoil operating system is a new software for your music server that allows ...even the computer/linux illiterate (like me)...to easily switch between different players and kernels to find the combo that best suits your system and your tastes.
What is a kernel? Don't know, don't care? That is the point; with Snakeoil you don't need to understand linux, kernels etc. You simply use your browser to change settings that affect sound quality.
Does it sound great? Well yes, actually but that is the wrong question. Snakeoil is not just one system and it doesn't claim to be the best. It is all about letting you switch between different types of sound within moments and from the comfort of your listening position. You decide what is best for you.
This thread is explicitly for:
-People to share their experiences of which Snakeoil settings they like best
-People seeking help in getting started or using Snakeoil.
-Following Snakeoil updates
i.e. Snakeoil only.

Please, please, if you want to talk about hardware, different software or your own computer genius, choose another thread. Consider the Snakeoil users that want a reference resource without pages of tangents to sift through. Thank you.
I posted this on the server thread but thought thought it deserved its own thread. IMO, it beats Daphile, Vortexbox , Audiophile Linux and others. And it can play J-river too ( licence needed).It may not work on all computers at this stage ( more development to come) but if it works on yours it is definitely worth trying.
You can find out about it from here:
and download from here. Go to "iso" thread for links
Here is a screenshot from one of the setup pages.
