I want ten really good thought out reason not to use Winamp over something else...

1. Personal preference.
2. ''
3. ''
4. ''
5. ''
6. ''
7. ''
8. ''
9. ''
10. Winamp doesn't run on my Mac.

Give me ten good reasons not to use iTunes or WMP.  It's all personal preference.  There are tons of tiny little quirks either way.  I happen to prefer the iTunes GUI and interface.  There are others who prefer WMP.  We love to assert that our chosen media player is best, but in fact, it's pretty much just splitting hairs.

Did I say Linux and AmaroK already? Because if not, I really should have done. AmaroK just towers above every other media player out there in every possible way.

hooray beer!

I will however, cede this point.

I use...whatever opens with the file I want to watch. divX, RealPlayer, Winamp, or iTunes. I really can't see the big debate.

(ii) Live well under your own authority.
(iii) Abolishing suffering is impossible. Lessening suffering is mandatory.

I've had severe distaste for Apple for a long time, namely because of their software practices. they've given us great hardware like USB and SCSI, but they use error codes instead of meaningful error messages, i've had to reboot without backing stuff up with a mac, they hadn't grasped double mouse buttons last i checked, they don't support many games, they're so picky on hardware specs that whatever fits their bill is more expensive than a PC counterpart, and they've supported DRM through iTunes.

that aside, Winamp is better than any other windows counterpart because it is so low on resources i can listen to music while i play CS, it supports global hotkeys while i play CS, any additional functionality still doesn't add much overhead and is easily found for free on their website, it's very customizable, very easy to use, and it's free. i've seen very few programs developed as intelligently as winamp and i would gladly buy a beer for any programmer who had a hand in it's development.

I wish I could have a cross-breed of Winamp and iTunes.

Winamp has global keyboard shortcuts for when I'm playing games, but iTunes has support for potentially huge libaries of music due to the quick search function, and the play stats, and easy id3v tag editing for multiple songs.
Winamp has Windowshade skins, iTunes is still pretty beefy when its minimized.
Winamp has equalizer controls, I dont beleive iTunes has.
iTunes has better iPod support (and other media devices are easily accessible also) compared to Winamp.

In short, I want iTunes that looks a bit like winamp with global shortcuts and without the Apple logo on it. Oh, and it has to be as customisable as Winamp, too. Plugins were fun.

the newest winamp will have an improved library and the ability to stream your mp3s anywhere you want (not just to fellow iTunes users). personally i don't own an ipod, but i don't see any reason to upgrade the firmware/software after i can update it with winamp. i know the plugin exists somewhere.

if winamp has a nicer music library (on par with WMP or itunes)then i'd definately download it again.
edit: HOLY SHITE, have you seen the new version? it answered my question within 30 seconds!

It seems a bit heavy.... (the new version, that is)

I like Winamp because it's so small, light and can tuck away in the corner where I can see it without having it cover all my other windows (see: itunes)
