    I personally use Winamp, although I get bored every time I run it. It's fast when you have the ugly skin that comes in, but if you put something nice, it takes forever to load.(forever=10 seconds )
    So I wan't to know other peoples opinion about each mediaplayer.

    Winamp takes me 4 seconds using Winamp modern with the default skin. I've never used 'Sonique', but I find Winamp an excellent media player, as soon as I swapped from Windows Media Player, I was stuck!

    I'm a hardcore user of the Winamp 2.91 bloodline - yes, the OLDER version. Even after I upgraded my 300mhz laptop to a new XP2500+, I still sticked to the older version. I don't need weird skins, nor fancy media features - almost 0% CPU usage is nice.

    I really felt the difference between Winamp 3 and Winamp 2 when I had that older laptop. Never bothered with WA5. On the old laptop WA3 would take seconds to load, but not WA2. Also I tried Sonique, but it was lacking in usability and performance, although it did look better. As for Windows Media Player, "mplayer2" is still my best friend..

    If you don't need fancy skins, I recommend you Winamp 5 with the classic skin. It's as fast as wa2.
    I will try iTunes and will give my opinion...

    But I'm so happy with my WA2 + FlatAmp skin combination.

    I've just installed iTunes and it sucks as media player. Maybe it's good for buying tracks, but for listening to music it sucks, it's even worser than WindowsMP (is that possible?...). I think the best is WA2 with a nice skin.

    PS- that FlatAmp skin sucks for me...

    I use iTunes completely now that my computer is fast enough. The only thing I don't like about it is that it takes up a taskbar button. It lets me find music very quickly, and I have been buying music from iTunes recently, too.

    It's slightly better on the Mac, though, especially in that if you close the window, it just keeps running in the Dock.

    But each to his own. The last time I used Sonique--at least a year ago--it royally sucked...more flashiness than functionality.

    I use Winamp 2.91 for streaming audio from their top 20 radio stuff, Digitally Imported rocks

    I use WMP9 for ripping CDs to my system that I'll play with it.
