Nothing will ever beat the joys of finding new "skins" for the Winamp player -- I had so many amazing ones lined up, and loved nothing more than switching them all out.

Sad to see it go...


I still do that fairly often. Audacious can load Winamp skins. Sometimes its interface borks on my collection (35,000+ songs), but it's responsive enough.

My desktop still looks very much like it did in the 1990s...

Cool! I've used the Sumea skin for about 15 years and I'd like to keep it, so I'm glad that I can use it with other music players.

I had even created a few skins back then. The CDs that came with computer magazines were a great source of new skins.

Those were the days!

End of an era. Sad day.
