Winamp

Winamp's still my music player of choice. I like the interface a lot better than iTunes or Windows Media Player (based on the default skins of each, which tend to be my favorites anyway). But, wow, it's had quite a few security vulnerabilities recently. This latest one requires an MP3 with an extremely-long ID3v2 tag, which means I'm fine, since I roll my own MP3s. A day may come when I switch to a different media player just because AOL decides it's no longer worthwhile producing updates to an outdated free product. I guess I'll be kind of like those people still using Windows 98, except Windows 98 cost a bit more than nothing...
