nice to hear that more people are using, wouldnt it be good if windows got so less users using windows media player they incorprated winamp. I like the little speaker icon you can set for it.

I like Windows Media Player, it's sleek and looks professional. I think win amp looks cheap.

If only they could solve all the annoying bugs...

I use both. I use Windows Media player for most music, and then since Winamp can use free plugins, I use that to run Modules that I can't run on Media Player.

I hate windows media player.

It locks up all the damn time, you can't do ANYTHING without it chugging. The fancy Shmancy UI bothers me, and I can't stand how media player 10 just adds another .exe to the task list. Just further proves MS doesn't care for power users.

As for what I use.. Winamp, classic skin. Lite edition.
VLC for videos.

I have soooo many different media players on my computer. I swear everything comes with one know. I bought my wireless keybored and mouse one came with that. Another came with my soundcard. One came with my mp3 player. I have some on my computer I dont even know where they come from. I mainly use windows media player though just because its really easy to use and I like how everything is organized.
