Winamp, used to rock that back in the day, how does it run on modern OS's as I thought it hadn't been updated in years?

Like the Vista feel going on there. Windows Vista was one of my favourite OS's (of all time) and although KDE Plasma comes close, nothing has ever touched on how good Vista looked. I like to keep everything stock these days to reduce issues so just put up with the Windows 10 look, it isn't bad by any means but it's not as nice as Vista.

It runs like a dream. The only minor complaint is that UI elements are quite small on a 1440p 25" display and were tiny on a 4K 32" display.

Windows' Aero Glass was stunning.

Ah that's winamp out then. I run my main PC through my living room TV which is 4K. I guess I could force DPI scaling but it'll look rubbish. I'm quite happy with VLC these days though.

Vista's grown on me a lot over the years. Out of all the Windows releases, it feels like the one with the most passion behind it UI-wise. Shame it flopped so hard after all that work.

Didn't Winamp suport some kind of 150/200% UI scaling somewhere in the menus, or am I mistaking for the transparency options it had? Maybe it was the bento theme that had UI scales.

I like a simple desktop, most of my shortcuts are live tiles (fullscreen) when I hit the Windows key). I created the wallpaper from the cover of Electronics' "Getting away with it" single and used Paint to make it full screen...I love it.

      Canalys: Global PC market saw 25% YoY growth in 4Q20
      by Paul Hill



      The analyst firm Canalys has reported that the global PC market saw 25% year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2020. The firm classifies the PC market as desktops, notebooks (including Chromebooks) and workstations but excludes tablets which are sometimes used by some in place of a full-blown PC. Total PC shipments in 2020 grew by 11% reaching 297 million units.

      The full-year growth in the PC market is the highest that’s been seen since 2020 and the number of units shipped is the highest seen since 2014. The growth in 2020 was driven by laptops and mobile workstations; they saw a growth rate of 44% compared to 2019. Desktops, on the other hand, were less successful with shipments falling 20% compared to 2019; there were 61.9 million shipments in this segment of the market in 2020.

      In the fourth quarter, the biggest PC vendor was Lenovo which shipped 23.1 million units, in second place was HP which shipped 19.1 million units. Dell came in third place shipping more than 15 million units for the first time ever, Apple was in fourth place shipping 7.1 million units and Acer came fifth with 6.1 million units shipped. Other companies shipped a combined 18.9 million units in the fourth quarter.

      According to Canalys Research Director Rushabh Doshi, PCs have been at the centre of the digital transformation that the world has gone through in the past year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Doshi said that going forward it’s going to be “extremely difficult” to write off PCs and that it’s likely that they’re here to stay.
