I know Rock in Rio ended some days ago, but I couldn’t let it pass without saying a few words about it. I didn’t get see it live, but I had the chance to follow some of the concerts on TV.
This year edition was without a doubt better then the a lot more “POPish” previous edition .
I have to say I don’t like to use iTunes that much and I’m the proud owner of an iPod! Although iTunes have a nice look with that .Mac like style it’s too cumbersome for me. I normally have a large quantity of music music files in my hard drives and most of the time they are not very organized… iTunes let me organized it… by cut, paste.. rename… cut…rename. NO!
I’ve always been a fan of Winamp, even though I stopped using it around2 years ago. I loved the diversity of options available to skin Winamp, visualization plugins, sound enhancers , etc. But Winamp sound out-of-the-box lacked a bit compared to iTunes, Windows Media Player or other well known audio players.
I used and still use Billy for great part of my computer listening sessions while I’m working since it’s so lightweight and simple. But when you want to have some library functions it’s too simple for that.
That’s when AIMP2 appeared and since then I’ve never looked back. AIMP2 is great. It’s all I wanted and more. It’s Winamp with a face lift but better… and it’s free!
