Shouldn't WinAMP be able to start up ALWAYS ON TOP without me having to check and uncheck the stupid option, especially after I posted about it in their bug forum?

This sounds like a problem with your install, not winamp...

Always on top works fine here.

Try to disable all plugins and see if that fixes it, then enable them one by one until you find the culprit, if that works.

Backup your settings(.ini's) and reset them/delete them to see if that fixes your problem.

* Improved: Made installer delete in_mp3pro :/

Although this is indeed surely an improvement... Why? :blink:
(Also - glad to see it's still being actively developed, although I rarely bother updating it - I'm still on 5.1 :P)

Lol... Well you know, Win95 is possibly the crappiest OS you can get these days, that is, if you want to do something else than play old games. Windows really has improved a lot over the years you know.. I'm not saying it's very good, but I'm not saying it hasn't improved over time either. That would just be declining reality.

Comparing Vista to Windows 95 is like comparing apples and oranges. The only similarities they have are the task bar and the three buttons on top of windows. Other than that, they are completely different visually and under the hood. And if you used both side-by-side, you'd see how far Windows has come. Vista is actually quite impressive.

Well, for starters, no, there is no such thing. Secondly, Winamp updates don't exist solely to "fix" the program. Look at the change log. Yes, there are many things that were fixed. However, many of these fixes come from the "new" "improved" and "updated" changes in recent past versions. Winamp adds new features, improves existing features, and fixes the bugs in their software as a result of these new and improved features. If you're waiting for an ultimate "final" version of Winamp, it's never going to happen (unless the group falls apart).

It's hard to have IPv6 supported when Winamp 1.0 was released.
Or Ogg supported before the format was developed.

Of course it's not going to all "be fixed"... :-p
