Save the version that works best for U in a seperate Winamp folder.

Anytime ya need to reload, presto!

There it is.

I've also saved the plugins and skins I like the most in the same folder on my music HD.

I do that with all programs I download. One never knows if a program's website will go south or the program be "improved" to something less acceptable.

What is the installer actually called?

I'm offered something called, "Winamp_Essentials_6_7_8_9_10.exe", not "Winamp Essentials Pack 5.6".

Agreed.
I have multiple copies of program installers (spanning several versions) saved.

Sometimes the new improved versions will be buggy.
On my PC, VLC v2.1.0 was a recent example of this.
I've had this happen several times in the past with VLC updates.

Winamp went dead here around 2002. I got sick of its problems and moved on. So did most others. And so this "news" isn't really news.

I didn't notice that. Someone wasn't thinking when they chose the numbering.
