Winamp 3.x sUx0rz!
Posted 30 December 2002 - 02:20 AM
Suddenly, all of the SKINS are deformed shapes and fukked up screen hogs with the buttons so camoflagued into the skin that I dont know WTF to CLICK ANYMORE! They also added video support to this version and it reassociated every fukking thing with it! Damn, are they taking programming lessons from MICROSOFT? It has pretty much become a knock-off of Media Player.
I think the push was to make it more "skinnable" but that also fukks up everyone who has already made a custom skin! Sure, some still work, but they are not complete and look tacky. If I had spent the time to make a nice skin and then they abandon the format for another one, I would be pissed. Your cummunity supported you and you fukking screwed them. Don't act surprised if they screw you by leaving.
Winamp has become an overengineered piece of SHIT. I just want a small, simple MP3 player. Is that too fukking much to ask for?
Luckily, they still seem to have a link to the old version 2.x on the site. I think I will roll back to that one instead.

It's just a random story off there site so it has no connection to the post, but is does say "AOL's Winamp"
Edit:"Its called WinAmp, and AOL owns it"

On the mac I prefer vamp....if it's still around anymore, it's just a small window that displays the time and levels if you really want them there, otherwise everything is keyboard shortcut for just about anything, and from the file menus you can go through the playlist - although a large playlist would be a real bitch and a half - but vamp was mac only.
Well, winamp 2.8 was good enough for me, I upgraded to 3.0 which I'm kicking myself for now. And screw the fact that AOL OwNz it - so far they're keeping it free with no spyware/adware which are good things in todays free software market (read: free windows software market)
 forgot to mention I never registered winamp, and considering who's collecting the info, I never will [\edit]

besides the bugginess - the skins are all fashion and little function - besides, like you said, the defualt one which looks like the old 2.x one!
3.x really sucks the llama's nuts
