Since I had gotten used to XMMS over the years and then BMP, Audacious
fills my needs very well. My favorite skins are compatible and it just
seems to keep improving. It's miles ahead of where XMMS was at the end
of its run. For those of us who just want a graphical music player
without the overhead of a server or jukebox, etc., it's great to have an
excellent piece of software keep improving.
