    I did used it (and use it anyway but not that often). Now I'm mostly using iTunes. [​IMG]
    (Maybe because I have got an iPod nano 8gb for free. hm. )

    I use Foobar2000. I love it for it's simplicity and very lite-ish nature. Also, it's a breeze to go through my massive music collection with the Album List and with Global Hotkeys that I assign to my numeric keypad for changing songs, etc., it fits my needs precisely.

    Edit: Also for the Channel Mixer so that I can make some use of my Left Rear, Center and Right Rear speakers when listening to Stereo music.

    Same as last time: MP3Tag. FFDShow and media player classic (maybe with an m3u if mp3tag is not around).

    Oh and a shiny pair of decent headphones, none of that ear bud nonsense.

    Winamp 2.79 and older.
    I fucking hate "collection" or "library manager" music programs. I have 4000 albums and don't want some fucking program to parse them all/add them to my library/divide into different genres (DURR HURR WHAT GENRE IS BOB MARLEY ALREADY DURR HURR), I use something called a DIRECTORY STRUCTURE, but I guess it's too fucking hard for some people to right-click and "enqueue folder" [​IMG];

    Anyway , if you hate winamp, use XMMS [​IMG]

    I use foobar2000 for albums, and WinAmp for single tracks.

    God I wish that Amarok wasn't just for linux.

    I've been using musikcube lately and it seems to do the trick well.

    I don't use Foobar2000 solely because I don't like the name, or the icon.

    Quintessential Media Player is pretty awesome, but it's still in beta and quite buggy.

    I fucking hate iTunes. My sister got a free shuffle so I installed it for her, then iTunes started to scan and duplicate all her mp3s without even asking first! As my friend so delightfully put it, "that's just plain rude!" [​IMG]

    Anyways, I hate any program that does that sort of thing, especially the ones that automatically associate all media files. It usually goes like this:

    "No, I have all my files associated with the right programs already thank you very much! I only installed you so I could play this damn .flv file! Why are you hijacking my mp3s? What the fuck are you doing trying to handle my avi movies? You can't even play half of my avi movies! Look! the screen is green for fucks sake! Get away from my porn folder! No I don't want you to... wait a minute... hold on a second... WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT?! Spyware?! Spy-fucking-ware?! You little shi... What? What's that? You can't play the .flv file?! You twat!"

    foobar2k along with a nice skin on Windows, and I guess I don't listen to music much in Linux - but when I do it's usually over the internet. Recently I found this great site - RadioBlogClub.com. So I use that. I used to use Winamp way back when, but since version 3, it's been such a resource hog that I can't stand it... Although the visualizations are amazing in it.

    Yeah. iTunes does a lot of things that I hate. If i listen to something that I've just downloaded, iTunes automatically adds it to my library. Then when I move the file to where I keep all my music folders, if I try to listen to that same song, it doesn't know where it went.

    Well listen up, iTunes. I didn't fucking tell you to add that file to my library in the first place.

    hahaha, this thread is making me laugh - I guess people are very protective when it comes to their music!

    iTunes sucks though...I must admit, I pretty much just use my xbox for playing mp3's - smb shared over wifi, hooked up to the home theater - much better than these p.o.s. vaio laptop speakers :S
