    I love this music player more than any other (yes, even the great Amarok) because I HATE WITH A PASSION all those music players that have to take up all the screen. The VERY least you can do is OFFER an option because believe or not, not everyone likes the same thing or has itunes envy.
    Im Winamp old school…. small is better.
    I want to set my playlist or just randomly pick a few mp3s and oggs and…. listen to music while I do something else.
    At most, i want to see some basic info: time, play, FF, FW, stop… maybe a small playlist.
    This is what Im talking about:

    If I wasnt using Audacious, Id be using VLC.
