It's text-based so you don't have a lot of fancy graphics slowing you down and the visualizer is very small and able to be got rid of if you don't like it. You can have a lot of playlists open at once in tabs. It's moderately easy to customize the title formatting and the colors used -- it requires a bit of experimentation but it's pretty easy to get the hang of it. You can set it to display a text balloon every time the song changes... and there's loads of plugins you can install that are really useful. I highly suggest you give it a try. It's not the greatest for ripping and burning CDs, but it's excellent for listening to music.

Good to know. Thanks.

And if you haven't figured it out from that statement, I use iTunes.

this place seems to have eaten my post.

winamp. i was going to use itunes, but most of my files are ripped as .wma's, but i don't like the windows media player too much. is there anyway (short of re-ripping them all as mp3s - which i don't want to do because it took forever to get them all on the computer in the first place. at the time i didn't know there was much of a difference between wma and mp3) to convert them to mp3s in one massive conversion or something?

I used to use WMP, but recently I have switched to RealPlayer. I like the cosmic belt visual.

I've used pretty much all of them at some point in time. Used to use WinAmp a TON with some WinMediaPlayer a lot too. Now I'm using iTunes the most. I'm sure I'll change again some time in the future.

Yes, you can. To convert from AAC to MP3:

Go to Preferences. Selectct Importing. Select MP3.

Then select the track you wish to convert. Click "Advanced", and Convert Track To MP3.

The file will convert to MP3 and be added to the top of your library.

You can use the same procedure to convert MP3 to AAC, just reverse your Importing selections.

FYI-You can convert multiple files at the same time. Simply highlight all the files you'd like to convert and proceed.

That will take a while. A long while. AAC sounds better and are smaller than MP3. I only convert to MP3 when burning a disc for my car (I have a MP3 player)
