well you would be stuck in the 90s. The interface works - so why mess up something that works. I like Winamp because it works seamlessly, does not hog memory like Itunes and reads most formats without fuss. I have not seen any other media player which offers similar features and is convenient.

As long as it lets me access my music remotely without being dependent on some cloud.
Uses next to no resources doing its thing (any other always uses a few % cpu, where I can't find a moment when Winamp needs more then 0.something besides the moment of startup.

Winamp has always been one of the few programs where I never minded it being different. But I've been using it since I downloaded my first few MP3's and the 'popular' choice back then was the horrible quicktime and realplayer.

It has everything a music player could ever need, and that since version 3.x already, why change.

Does this version have the new DPI fix, or is that only in 5.7 Beta? I'd like to know before installing it. Please let me know. Thanks!!
