Pithos is a Linux based client for the GNOME Desktop for the online music platform: Pandora.com. Although there is a official Flash based Linux client for Pandora.com but it is a RAM hog and does not leave you with a tasteful experience. There is another client called the Pianobar but is only for the command-line.
Among all these, Pithos proves to be the best desktop based Linux client for Pandora.com and has support for media keys and song notifications.
