I abandoned this program for MediaMonkey, an entirely better program in every way, and compatible with Winamp plugins.

I abandoned it for a while in favor of Zune, solely because I needed Zune to sync files with my HTC Trophy. Now that I have a Lumia 928 I'm back to Winamp. But... goddamn, will somebody please make a nice, clean, modern skin that looks professional for it? The only skin for Winamp I have ever loved is MMD3, and that's a bit behind the times now. I guess all the skinners went to Foobar or something?
