I still use it for listening to radio streams and that's about it.
There are better programs out now, so I'm sure Winamp's popularity has faded, big time.

This is bad news for me.

Winamp is the only music player I can tolerate on Windows (Linux players are even worse).
Everything else is utter garbage (awful GUI, weird behaviour, etc.)..

Any suggestions? Don't include iTunes as that has no place on any of my machines.
