Not quite sure what to think about it...but if it'll have tight integration with such web services as Last.fm (I'm still waiting for guessing what to play next based on few songs already played BTW) and MusicBrainz, why not...

It's has web intergration, might lead to some really nasty security holes. Personally i'm gonna stick to foobar.

A new version, called 0.1, was released today and mention at digg.com has crushed their servers. http://www.songbirdnest.com/ It seems only to work on MP3s.
I strongly agree with

It managed to play some Ogg Vorbis files here, though it did not recognize the tags on these.

The "Scan for media" function completed rather fast, but I had to wait awfully long until the background scanning was done and the files showed up in the library. The thing I noticed most about the keyboard usability was the lack thereof, perhaps the developers consider this one of the "advanced features people now expect from modern music software". Neither the default black skin nor the alternate red skin did appeal to me, the colors are too intense and the contrast too low (column labels, etc). The visual appeal surely depends a lot on personal taste, but my first impression is that they still have a long way to go.
